Committee on Interjurisdictional Relations: With Chairman J. Clay 
Madison presiding, the report was read by R. H. Nicholson. J. L. Stokes 
requested that a statement be included to indicate that our Methodist col- 
leges are already open to all races. The committee agreed to include the 
statement. C. P. Bowles called for clarification of the term "a time lapse." 
J. Clay Madison explained that this was an interpretation of the General 
Conference plan. J. W. Fowler, Jr. asked for information concerning a target 
date. J. Clay Madison replied. C. P. Bowles asked if this matter will be taken 
up in 1966 or will it be deferred until 1968. Bishop Hunt explained that the 
1966 call session of the General Conference would be an adjourned session 
of the 1964 General Conference. Donald W. Haynes asked about the trans- 
fer of bishops and Clay Madison explained the implications of the recom- 
mendation. Robert M. Hardee asked about the effect of the pending action 
on the local church. J. Clay Madison explained that Step 1 would be an 
invitation to the Central Jurisdictional Annual Conferences to come into the 
Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference as conferences, and that they would 
continue to exist as present annual conferences until further action is taken. 
D. W. Tucker asked if local church members are being kept informed on 
these proposed steps. J. Clay Madison replied that all Annual Conference 
ministers and delegates from each district have met for full explanations of 
the proposed action and that ministers and lay delegates should explain this 
action to their local churches. R. H. Taylor made a motion to extend the time 
as long as would be necessary to complete current discussions, and it was 
so ordered. 

A. J. Clemmer asked if Section 8, the last line, precludes that Annual 
Conferences in the Central Jurisdiction will eventually be merged with re- 



Western North Carolina Conference 79 

gional Jurisdictions if this amendment carries. J. Clay Madison explained 
that this present action does not set a date. 

Vance Davis, in referring to the 7th recommendation in the report, asked 
what will happen if Step 1 is taken and Step 2 is not taken. J. Clay Madison 
explained that the Central Jurisdictional Conferences do not wish to have 
their conferences eliminated by fragments, but that it be done as a whole. 
Therefore, it is possible that the invitation may not be accepted. Jim Davis 
asked if it will take two-thirds majority of all Methodists voting in the Juris- 
diction, to which Bishop Hunt replied affirmatively; Jim Davis then asked 
who determines the boundaries of the annual conferences. J. Clay Madison 
reported that the Judicial Council has not yet given its ruling on this ques- 
tion. 

A. M. Faulkner pointed out that step 1 should be taken because of its 
total impact on the church. A. J. Cox requested that more information for 
local church members be given before we act on the matter. Wilson O. Wel- 
don moved the previous question on the report seconded by Ray F. Swink 
and it was so ordered. Before the vote was taken, J. Clay Madison expressed 
opposition to waiting to extend the invitation because it is right to act now 
and not because we have to. The report was adopted. ( See Report W ) . 

J. Clay Madison presented the following resolution: 

INVITATION TO CENTRAL JURISDICTIONAL CONFERENCES 
Whereas the 1964 General Conference adopted a plan for the elimination of the Cen- 
tral Jurisdiction, and 

Whereas this plan of action calls for two distinct and separate steps: 

(1) the transfer of Annual Conferences of the Central Jurisdiction into the Regional 
Jurisdictions in which they are geographically located. 

(2) the merging of Central Jurisdiction Annual Conferences with the Annual Con- 
ferences of the Jurisdictions into which they have transferred, and 

Whereas these steps are to be taken under Amendment Nine which provides for 
voluntary action, and 

Whereas the delegates of this Annual Conference supported the plan of action which 
was adopted at General Conference, and 

Whereas the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference in its 1964 session expressed the 
judgment ". . . that the time is at hand when our Annual Conferences should invite the 
Annual Conferences of the Central Jurisdiction within our boundaries to come as Annual 
Conferences into the fellowship of the Southeastern Jurisdiction in accordance with 
Step 1 of the 'plan of action' approved by the General Conference;" 

Be it therefore resolved that we join with the other Conferences of the Southeastern 
Jurisdiction in extending an invitation to the Conferences of the Central Jurisdiction lying 
within the boundaries of the Southeastern Jurisdiction to transfer as Conferences into 
the Southeastern Jurisdiction.

Western North Carolina Conference 81 

Resolution: Frank Jordan, Chairman of the Committee on Conference 
Personnel, presented the following resolution, which was adopted: 

"At the conference of 1963, Bishop Nolan B. Harmon appointed a committee to make 
a study of the employed personnel of the conference. During the conference year 1963-64 
this committee met on several occasions and brought a report to the annual conference 
of 1964, part of which report was adopted. The conference ordered the committee con- 
tinued through this conference year. Owing to the fact that a new bishop has been 
assigned and has assumed residence in this area, we have felt it wise to wait until he has 
gotten a firm grasp of the total program and picture of the Annual Conference. 

"We do think that this matter of the conference personnel is of vital importance, 
and we would like to suggest that 

"Whereas the Committee on Conference Personnel was appointed in the preceding 
quadrennium by a bishop no longer exercising presidential powers in this conference, and 

"Whereas we have a new president of our conference, 

"Be it resolved that this committee be dissolved and that Bishop Hunt be requested 
to name a new committee to continue this vital study."

Cecil L. Heckabd, Chairman 

Introduction: Chaplain J. Russell Andrews was recognized and present- 
ed to the Conference. 

Board of Christian Social Concerns: With Ray F. Swink in charge, the 
Board of Christian Social Concerns' hour was observed. The chairman in- 
troduced the speaker, Dr. Haskell Miller, Research Consultant, Division of 
Alcohol Problems and General Welfare, Board of Christian Social Concerns, 
Washington, D. C. His subject was "The Present Moral Crisis." Ray Swink 
called attention to two conferences. 

A motion to extend time was made by R. H. Nicholson, and it was passed. 

Board of Christian Social Concerns: Jack Cooke moved the deletion of 
paragraph 6 of the Section on Human Relations and Economic Affairs. Miles 
McLean spoke in favor of eliminating the paragraph. Julian Lindsey spoke 
against deletion; Jerome Huneycutt favored the deletion; Walter Broome 
spoke in favor of keeping the paragraph in the report. Ray Swink spoke to 
clarify the previous action of The Methodist Church on this matter. Roy T. 
Houts, Jr. introduced a substitute motion as follows: "We urge our ministers 
to cooperate in every way possible with those leaders and groups who are 
seeking to use Christian methods to achieve racial equality and an inclusive 
society." A. L. Maxwell spoke against the substitute motion. Upon call of 
Ellsworth Hartsfiekl a count vote was taken with 527 for, and 230 against, 
and the substitute prevailed. The entire report was then adopted. (See Re- 
port I). 

Resolution: Worth Sweet introduced the following resolution which was 
passed: 

"The Western North Carolina Conference now in session at Lake Junaluska requests 
other Christian faiths to join us in our stand against the liquor traffic in our state and 
nation. 

"We believe that liquor stores are the sources from which mental, moral, and finan- 
cial sicknesses are coming. We believe liquor stores are not legal control, but legal dis- 
tributors of alcohol which is having more harmful effects on our people in crime, in 
breaking of homes, in alcoholics, in causing the average tax-payer to finally have to pay 
the increased taxes from the result of legal liquor. We further believe that the time has 
come when we can demand a state-wide referendum on the liquor store issue. We believe 
this legislation of a wet county by a dry county is bad legislation." 

Bay F. Swink, Chairman 
Worth A. Sweet, Secretary 

N. M. Plarrison announced the organization of a permanent anti-liquor 
committee for the city of High Point. 

Resolution: Worth Sweet introduced the following resolution, which

"Whereas the cities of Asheboro, High Point and Bandleman, North Carolina, re- 
cently held elections on ABC stores; and whereas the citizens of Asheboro and High 



Western North Carolina Conference 85 

Point were successful in defeating the establishment of ABC stores in their cities; and 
whereas the city of Randleman lost the election by 52 votes; 

"Be it, therefore, resolved that the Western North Carolina Conference in session at 
Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, June 9-13, 1965, commend the laymen, laywomen and 
members^of the ministerial associations of these cities for their untiring efforts in these 
elections." 

Ray F. Swink, Chairman 
Worth A. Sweet, Secretary 

Resolution: Robert M. Hardee introduced the following resolution, and 
it was adopted: 

"Because hate organizations are again raising their heads, we ask you to join us in 
saying the Ku Klux Klan is a hate organization that has no place in our modern society. 

"We ask all members of our Conference to refrain from joining, and we feel that a 
Methodist minister is out of place serving as chaplain to any hate group." 

Jack Crum of the North Carolina Council of Churches was introduced by- 
Ray Swink. 

Nathan Gardner requested that a statement against communism be made, 
and Bishop Hunt suggested that the Board of Christian Social Concerns in- 
sert such a statement. A motion to this effect was made by C. P. Bowles and 
approved. 

Excused: Frank Starnes, A. B. Pearce, Moody Smith and John E. Hawk- 
ins were excused. 

Minimum Salary: Gordon L. Goodson spoke briefly to the report of the 
Commission on Minimum Salary. R. Dwight Ware moved that the report be 
amended in schedule 4, section F, paragraph 2, to include six children, rather 
than four, as recommended. M. W. Nesbitt spoke against a change in the 
report, indicating that a reduction of $50.00 per child would be necessary if 
the number of children was increased from four to six. The amendment did 
not carry. 

E. H. Blackard asked for clarification of section D, and M. W. Nesbitt 
interpreted the meaning of this section. The report was then adopted, (See 
Report D ) . 

Reconsideration: James G. Huggin moved for reconsideration of the 
resolution of the Board of Christian Social Concerns referring to the recent 
ABC store election. A count vote showed 129 voting against reconsideration 
and 118 voting for, and the motion lost. 

Fraternal Delegate: Rev. William Crawford of High Point, a minister of 
the North Carolina-Virginia Conference of the Central Jurisdiction, spoke 
briefly as a fraternal delegate. 

Motion: R. G. Turtle moved that the Conference reconvene at 2:00 
o'clock this afternoon, due to the pressure of business, and it carried. 

Duke Endowment: Wilson Nesbitt spoke briefly to the report of the 
Duke Endowment, which was ordered to record. (See Report U). 

Introduction: Bishop Hunt presented J. Claude Evans, chaplain of 
Southern Methodist University, who brought greetings from the University 
and the Perkins School of Theology. 

Order of the Day: On motion of Wilson O. Weldon, 2:30 p.m. was set 
as the Order of the Dav to consider amendments. 

Announcements: Charles D. White made the announcements. 

Privilege Matter: Bishop Hunt recognized E. H. Lowman for a privilege 
matter and the following statement was given: 



86 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

"For some time I have cherished the desire to establish a suitable memorial to my be- 
loved parents, Elam Newton King, 1872-1951, and Roxanna Taylor King, 1866-1928, who 
loved good preaching, believed in sound education, and made sacrifices to give their 
children the best education possible. They were members of the Hickory Grove Methodist 
Church in Mecklenburg County all their mature lives. Thought had been given to an 
educational foundation that would produce some return that could be used for scholar- 
ship aid for deserving students, but the matter of effective administration of a small 
endowment seemed impractical on a local basis. The program initiated by Bishop Earl 
Hunt, Jr., creating an Institute for Homiletical Studies of the Western North Carolina 
Annual Conference, as interpreted to me by my pastar, the Rev. E. H. Lowman, seems to 
possess effective means for stimulating interest in dynamic preaching. I am responding 
to this opportunity by making available to the Board of Trustees of the Institute for 
Homiletical Studies of the Western North Carolina Annual Conference the amount of 
$10,000 after July 1, 1965, through Cole Memorial Methodist Church. This fund is to 
be used as an endowment with the investment returns to be used by said Board of Trus- 
tees for either a specific phase of the proposed program or for the program in general. 
In event that this Institute for Homiletical Studies ceases to function for the purpose for 
which it was created, I request that the principal sum of $10,000 be transferred to an 
educational endowment fund to provide scholarship aid to deserving students in our 
Methodist colleges of the Western North Carolina Annual Conference, with some priority 
preference to be given to members of the Hickory Grove and Cole Memorial Methodist 
Churches of Charlotte." 

/s/ D. Marvin King, Charlotte 

The secretary was instructed to convey thanks from the Conference to 
Mr. King for his interest and his generosity. 

Telegrams: The Secretary read telegrams of greetings from Bishop W. 
Kenneth Goodson and Secretary Herschel Hamner of the North Alabama

Memphis Conference; Bishop Paul Hardin, Jr., and Mrs. Lucy C. Kern of 
Nashville, Tennessee. 

Preaching Hour: Edwin Easter led the Conference in singing Hymn 
(Sampler) 12, "Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus." The male double quartet 
sang "Remember Me, Almighty One." Dr. Robert C. Goodrich delivered the 
sermon based on Matthew 22, using the title, "Our Moral Crisis." The bene- 
diction was pronounced by Dr. Goodrich, and the Conference was dismissed 
at 12:47 p.m. 

Afternoon Session 

Hymn ( Sampler ) 2, "Praise The Lord Who Reigns Above," was sung by 
the congregation under the leadership of Edwin Easter. Bishop Hunt offered 
prayer.

ed (see Report X). He then presented S. J. Staines, editor of the North Caro- 
lina Christian Advocate, who expressed appreciation for the support given 
the Advocate. 

Conference Relations: H. E. Bolick made a motion that the name of one 
of the previously retired men be placed back on the active Conference mem- 
bership roll and that the previous action, which by error listed his name 
among the retired, be rescinded. This was done. 

Treasurer's Report: F. D. Russell made the treasurer's report which was 
ordered to record. (See treasurer's report). Bishop Hunt spoke words of 
appreciation for the treasurer's work. 

Resolution: Frank B. Jordan presented the following resolution: 

"Whereas the Western North Carolina Annual Conference at its 1964 session adopted 
the report of the World Service and Finance Commission which included a new formula 



Western North Carolina Conference 87 

for apportioning the Conference budget, namely, 25% based upon membership and 75% 
based upon total giving (Item 78 of Pastors' Report), excluding payment on principal 
and interest on indebtedness and building improvements (Items 44 and 45 of Pastor's 
Report), and 

"Whereas this report was amended to exclude also Advance Specials (Item 60) and 
Christian Higher Education Capital Funds (item 69) of Pastor's Report, and 

"Whereas subsequent conference action postponed the effect of this amendment for 
one year, 

"Be it therefore resolved that the amendment be rescinded which excludes Items 60 
and 69 of the Pastor's Report from the base on which apportionments are figured and 
that we continue to apportion the Conference budget as first recommended by the Com- 
mission on World Service and Finance and as the Conference has followed for the 1964- 
1965 Conference year." 

Frank Jordan 

J. Clay Madison presented a statement to clarify the position of our Con- 
ference Board of Missions. H. R. McSwain made further explanation. D. K. 
Funderburk opposed the inclusion of mission specials in the base for figuring 
apportionments. Robert M. Smith favored inclusion. Frank Jordan spoke in

A. Glenn Lackey requested clarification of the difference between the Coun- 
cil of Bishops and the College of Bishops. Charles D. White gave the ex- 
planation. J. W. Fowler, Jr. explained that passage of the amendment would 
mean simultaneous meetings of all Jurisdictional Conferences. Fletcher Nel- 
son called for the previous question. James Gilland raised a question about 
the place and the time, if the amendment passed. Charles D. White gave the 
clarification. The vote was taken; 31 voted for, and 662 voted against it. 

Board of Missions: With J. Clay Madison presiding, the program opened 
with the singing of Hymn 483, "The Kingdom is Coming." The prayer in 
Korean was led by Charles D. Stokes. Dr. Madison called attention to the 
report. Rollin Gibbs, Director of Finance and Field Service, was presented. 
J. H. Carper was named as the new Director of Church Extension, to suc- 
ceed A. Glenn Lackey. Horace McSwain presented all missionaries present 
at the service, who were Rev. W. E. Andrews, Rev. and Mrs. David Swain, 
Dr. Creighton Lacy, Dr. Herbert Peterson, Dr. and Mrs. Reeves Betts, Miss 
Joann Goforth, Miss Carolyn Thorne, Miss Mabel Cherry, Miss Louise Bal-

S8 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

asked if $50,000 will be adequate support so far as this Conference is con- 
cerned for the Copacabana Beach Methodist Church. J. Clay Madison re- 
plied that it would since another annual conference is also attempting to 
raise a similar amount. 

N. M. Harrison told of work being done by laymen in Puerto Rico and 
Costa Rica at no cost to the church. Some support from individuals and local 
churches is necessary to assist these projects. He suggested that these be in- 
cluded as projects in Mission Special division. The report was adopted. (See 
Report P ) . 

Following the singing of Hymn 475, "Q Zion, Haste," Mrs. David L. 
Swain offered the closing prayer in Japanese. 

World Service and Finance: R. Powell Majors called attention to the re- 
port of the Commission. 

A. C. Waggoner asked a question about "Temporary Relief Fund." Bishop 
Hunt stated that it was an equalization fund to help with pensions, etc. 

Don Haynes asked about the Interdenominational Cooperation Fund and 
stated that this fund seems to prompt questions concerning its relationship 
to the National Council of Churches. 

The report corrected was adopted. (See Report A). 

Special Committee Report: Herbert M. Wayne presented the following 
report which was adopted: 

RECOMMENDATION OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER PROVIDING 
AN EPISCOPAL RESIDENCE 

The committee met in Charlotte on May 13th with the following members present: 
Edwin Ford, Charles I. Henderson, Edwin L. Jones, Dwight L. Phillips, Mrs. Ross Puette, 
Herbert M. Wayne. The chairman advised the committee that he had contacted each 
episcopal area in the Southeastern lurisdiction. A resume of the replies was presented 
as follows: 

In each case an episcopal residence is provided by the area and the monthly allow- 
ance is turned over to the area. In all instances the utilities are provided by the area. It 
was not clear what utilities were included; however, in at least one area it covered heat 
and telephone. In another area the bishop was given an allowance for yard care. In all 
cases repairs and maintenance are provided by the area. 

After careful consideration, the following resolution was unanimously adopted: "So 
far as we are able to ascertain, the present ownership arrangement for the episcopal 
residence in Charlotte has been satisfactory and has not been detrimental in any way to 
the Western North Carolina Conference. However, if the Conference desires to own 
the episcopal residence, we are assured the present owners will offer no objection and 
your committee should be authorized to negotiate the purchase of same, provided Bishop 
Hunt is satisfied with this property as the episcopal residence. If Bishop Hunt prefers 
another residence, this committee should be authorized to purchase a suitable residence 
and at the expense of the Western North Carolina Conference." 

The bishops for the past number of years have made Charlotte the place of residence. 
Members of the Conference having business with the bishop have found it convenient 
and satisfactory. The location of Charlotte provides particular convenience for the 
bishop's requirements. The excellent air connection is essential for travel. The bishop's 
residence in Charlotte, the largest community in the Carolinas, adds to the prestige and 
prominence of the Methodist Conference in the area. It is therefore recommended that 
the bishop's residence remain in Charlotte, as legally designated by the Southeastern 
Jurisdictional Conference. 

/s/ Herbert M. Wayne 

Episcopal Residence: R. E. Thigpen offered the following resolution: 
Whereas the report of the Special Committee indicates that the episcopal residence 
in each of the other areas in the Southwestrn Jurisdiction is owned by the area; and 

Whereas, the Western North Carolina Conference does not own the episcopal resi- 
dence at Charlotte; and 



Western North Carolina Conference 89 

Whereas, the said report suggests the advisability of this Conference acquiring a 
more suitable episcopal residence at Charlotte, 

Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Western North Carolina Conference in session 
at Lake Junaluska this 11th day of June 1965, 

1. That we express our appreciation to the Charlotte District Mission Society, Mr. 
Edwin L. Jones and the family of the late J. A. Jones, for their great services in providing 
and maintaining the episcopal residence at Charlotte for the past twenty or more years. 

2. That the Special Committee be and the same is hereby continued with authority 
to buy or build, and to equip, a modern and more suitable residence at Charlotte for 
our bishop. 

3. That the Commission on World Service and Finance be and is hereby authorized 
and directed to provide the funds necessary to acquire and equip the episcopal residence, 

the title to which shall vest in the Board of Trustees of the Western North Carolina Con- 
ference, Incorporated. 

4. That the said residence be acquired as soon as possible, and the Special Committee 
report to the 1966 Conference. 

R. Dwight Ware asked if the bishop would like his equity in the pur- 
chase of the proposed episcopal residence. R. E. Thigpen stated that he felt 
it would be better to let the committee work out the final details and the re- 
port was adopted. 

Rules of Order: J. C. Stokes offered an amendment to the Rules of Or- 
der, section V-G, page 145 of the 1964 Journal regarding dedication of the 
Journal; this amendment to lie on the table for twenty -four hours. 

C. M. White offered an amendment to the Rules of Order in regard to 
the receiving of the per diem; this amendment also to lie on the table for 
twenty-four hours.

nouncements.

Morning Session

Young, Jr. offered the prayer. Mrs. Henry Flowers sang a solo, "There Is No

The Memorial Address was delivered by Lee F. Tuttle, whose topic was 
"Servants." 

SERVANTS 

1 Peter 2:16: "Live as free men, hut live as servants of God." 
Never in the history of mankind has humanity been so insistent in its demand for 
rights and privileges. We hear the echo of this cry on every hand. There are no more 
vibrantly alive words in this day than independence, liberty, and freedom! No words are 
more burning in the demands which they make upon our conscience and sympathy than 
these. On what ground, we ask ourselves, can anyone denv to another, whether individ- 
ual, race, or nation, that which accompanies the fidl and abundant life? 

While all will agree that these are legitimate demands and in harmony with Christian 
ideals, one yet regrets the innocent casualties of any emotion-packed crusade. The word 
servant is such a casualty. It has become very nearly the least popular word in the dic- 
tionary, and is in danger of dropping completely from our vocabulary. There is an ugly 



Western North Carolina Conference 91 

stigma attached to the word. Certainly the servant image is the one most to be avoided 
in our generation. 

Yet this morning we have gathered here to honor a band of servants — God's servants 
— dedicated men who have neither sought nor desired independence, freedom, and lib- 
erty apart from God's will for their lives. To these faithful persons, trained to value the 
judgment of God rather than men, this fact is but another of a long list of paradoxes by 
which the cause of Christ has proved its superiority over the world. They have known 
that we live in a world which cannot do without servants. Least of all can the Christian 
world omit this vital ingredient of its character? They have, therefore, been proud to 
carry that name made honorable by their Christ. 

The problem is posed for us, then, how do we come to grips with the contradiction 
within the Christian life which demands independence, freedom and liberty for all, but 
depends upon servants to carry its message and purpose to a needy world? Here we must 
follow closely the thinking of Jesus as He performs the humble act of washing the feet 
of His disciples, saying, "I am among you as one who serves," or when He would rebuke 
those who seek the high places, advises, "let him who is greatest be the servant of all." 

In a word, therefore, we must fall back upon the peculiar genius of the Christian 
faith which glories to take the unwanted and the unpopular truth of life and dig into 
its gold mine of meaning until it stands crystal clear in its full significance for God's 
people. Thus we see why it is impossible to erase from the Christian Gospel the term 
"servant." We also see in the example of Jesus one who occupies this place both with a 
freedom and a power superior to anything this world can give. 

"The kingdoms of the world go by, 
In purple and in gold, 
They rise, they triumph and they die, 
And all their tale is told. 

"One kingdom only is divine, 

One banner triumphs still, 
Its King a servant, its sign 
A gibbet on a hill." 

— Godfrey Fox Bradley. 

With these words of introduction, may I now take a scriptural text for this message? 
It is found in 1 Peter 2:16. It reads, "Live as free men, but live as servants of God." Now 
within the framework of this text, may I say three things about servants. 

The True Servant is a Chosen Person 

Each member in this honor class of the Western North Carolina Conference this 
morning is a person chosen of God. Please note that I speak in the present tense. He is 
also one who has responded to that special call of God's will by a willingness to accept 
the claim which God has laid upon him, and by dedicating the talent of power which 
God has made evident in his life. What would any one of us here this morning be without 
God's call and His promise of power? No greater compliment ever has or ever can be 
given to any one of us than this eternal fact that God has claimed us for His servants. 

St. Paul could boast of being a servant of Christ, and likewise, he could cite as his 
authority the fact that he was such a servant. Could any servant ever have been called 
in a more dramatic fashion? Listen to his words: "I thank Christ Jesus our Lord because 
He judged me faithful by appointing me His servant," (I Timothy 1:12). In this verse 
you find Paul's recognition of God's great risk in the calling of His ministers, or servants. 
I like the way Bishop Short gives a free translation to this passage. "I thank Christ Jesus, 
our Lord, that He took a chance on me." It must be pointed out, however, there is an 
urgent quality about God's chance-taking with us which makes us determined to make 
God's gamble on us a sure and winning venture. 

You may go back over the life story of each faithful one whom we honor this morning, 
and examine in detail his experience, but you will never find a greater moment than that 
moment when God extended His call, and when in radiant faith he made his response, 
"Here am I; send me," This is the moment when we each one have wanted to say with 
Melville B. Cox, "I want to know all about God a man can know and still live." 

In his choosing, God makes no mistakes although there have been occasions when 
you and I perhaps have thought we could do better. Yet, with His call God seems to 
instill the power to enable each chosen per.sorj to arise to this occasion for which God 
has laid His hand upon his life. 



Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

I grew up hearing the story of Uncle Stanhope Hood. He was an old Negro slave 
of my grandfather's who, when freedom came, had no people and no place to go. He 
told my grandfather that he wanted to stay on the farm, if he would permit him. A little 
parcel of land was set aside and a little cabin built on a hill, still known as the Uncle 
Stanhope Hood place. There this old man lived out his days. 

This, however, is only part of the story. One day God spoke to Uncle Stanhope and 
told him He wanted him to be a preacher! Now Uncle Stanhope couldn't read a verse of 
scripture, nor could he even write his own name. But he accepted the call, and began 
to preach. You must remember until 1870 there was no separate Negro Methodism in the 
South. All Methodists worshipped in this same church. 

Littlejohn's Church in Caldwell County was therefore Uncle Stanhope's home church. 
He preached there often, and I have heard my father say no preacher who ever stood 
in that pulpit could quite match him. When Uncle Stanhope was scheduled to preach 
there, the church was always overflowing. 

Maybe God didn't know what He was doing when He chose this ignorant old Negro 
man to be His preacher, but since that time twenty-three first and second generation 
preachers and missionaries have come out of that one little country church of less than 
200 members! 

The True Servant Takes His Direction from One Master 

Those who have made studies of successful people are pretty well agreed that the 
one most important characteristic which leads to success in any endeavor of life is single- 
mindedness. This characteristic is so much a part of the dedicated minister of Jesus 
Christ that it would appear to belong almost solely to Him. To be a single-minded servant 
of Christ is no easy task. It takes great moral courage, and stamina. When, however, 
we have these qualities in sufficient quantity to follow His directions, life's complicated 
situations can become amazingly simplified. 

In the movie of several years ago about A Man Called Peter you see both sides of this 
matter of being a servant of Christ. There are many scenes to quicken the heart of any 
minister when Peter Marshall stands in the spotlight of public acclaim receiving the 
adulation of people of all walks and stations of life. This is heady wine indeed! And what 
minister has not tasted its sweetness? 

There is, however, a more realistic scene in another part of the picture. Tragic illness, 
both his own and his wife's, seems to be striking at the roots of all that he holds dear. 
Not only is the breakup of their family life imminent, but it is threatening to ruin a bril- 
liant ministerial career right at its peak. With such disaster facing him he goes to attend 
the furnace in the parsonage basement. On the way back, he sinks down in utter despair 
on the basement stairway. This is the black moment of his life. He seems to be groping 
blindly alone, and there is no way out. Here is the picture of defeated man, until God 
once more "taps him on the shoulder" and instills new courage. I have said repeatedly 
to younger ministers that for every one of the great moments of triumph in the ministry 
there will be several of the experiences on the basement stairway. Yet Christ, our one 
Master, leads and directs, and with Him we, His true servants, find the way out. 

It is because the true servant takes his direction from one Master, and from one 
Master only, that he may sometimes walk a different way and with a different step from 
his fellow man. It is always easy to misunderstand and criticize the non-conformist who 
seems to be out of step with the crowd. Someone has reminded us that a person out of 
step with us may be listening to a beat of a different drummer. The true Christian servant 
is captive to a source of higher guidance. 

"Make me a captive, Lord, 

and then I shall be free; 
Force me to render up my sword, 

and I shall conqueror be; 
I sink in life's alarms, 

when by myself I stand; 
Imprison me within Thine arms, 

and strong shall be mv hand. 



Western North Carolina Conference 93 

"My heart is weak and poor, 

until it master find; 
It has no spring of action sure, 

It varies with the wind. 
It cannot freely move till Thou 

hast wrought its chain; 
Enslave it with Thy matchless love, 

And deathless it shall reign. 

"My power is faint and low, 

Till I have learned to serve; 
It wants the needed fire to glow, 

It wants the breeze to nerve; 
It cannot drive the world, 

Until itself be driven; 
Its flag can only be unfurled, 

When Thou shalt breathe from heaven. 

"My will is not my own, 

Till Thou hast made it Thine; 
If it would reach a monarch's throne, 

It must its crown resign; 
It only stands unbent, 

Amid the clashing strife, 
When on Thy bosom it has leant, 

And found in Thee its life." 

It is at this point — this important point, that the servant becomes a prophet- — with one 
message from one master aimed at the need of the world. We honor such departed 
prophets today. 

The True Servant Received His Reward from his Master , 

How many are the references in our New Testament giving us the greatest assurance 
of the eternal reward the true Master has for His faithful servants! Listen to these verses 
from the New Testament: 

"Thou hast been faithful over a few things. Behold, I will now make thee ruler over 
many things; enter thou into the joy of the Lord. (Matthew 1:25). 

"Where I am, there shall my servant be also." (John 12:26). 

"I call you no longer servants, but friends." (John 15:15). 

Nor are all of the rewards of servanthood to our Christ reserved for our passing from 
this earthly scene. Was it not William James who said, "the greatest victory of life is 
to lose oneself in something which will outlive him?" Our Christ has called us to a con- 
tinuing task and we live each day in the realization we are part of eternal things. 

I like the seldom-quoted words which are to be found in Westminster Abbey under- 
neath the plaque memorializing John and Charles Wesley. These are the words: "God 
buries his workmen but carries on His work." Can there be a greater satisfaction and 
happiness than this? To know that the God to whom we are committed has the power 
and the determination to carry on to success and final fruition that which has been the 
highest goal of our lives? 

You have hear the story which has been told of St. Luke's Methodist Church in Okla- 
homa City. When this beautiful structure had been completed except for the spire, it 
was learned that an additional $100,000 would be required for such a spire. This money 
did not seem to be in sight. Finally one person agreed to give the $100,000 to place the 
spire on the church on one condition. That condition was that the architect would "so 
plan the spire that to all succeeding generations it would appear to be unfinished." 

To be a part of such a terrific spiritual adventure is the great reward which God 
gives to His servants, in eternal life. 

In such a continuing task have these faithful servants given themselves through many 
years. They have placed their talents and their abilities in the hands of a God who is 
Master both of their lives and ours, and the certainty of ultimate victory. Each has had 
his amazingly large part in the performance and blessing that this task has brought to 
the world. 

In my first appointment in this Conference after returning from the seminary I was 



94 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

appointed to the old Brevard Street Church in Charlotte. One day two friends and I had 
a most interesting experience. It was before the days of diesel locomotives. The Seaboard 
Railway which runs a spur line into Charlotte, had just purchased some of the largest 
locomotives ever made. They were the big mallay-type of locomotive, with 16 drive- 
wheels — two sets of drive wheels on either side of the engine. They were quite proud of 
these locomotives and since there was a freight yard almost in the center of the city 
of Charlotte, they brought these tremendous engines there to the freight yards to display 
them. They built ramps aroimd them and invited all who were interested to come and 
climb all over the locomotives, and to inspect them thoroughly. They left the crew on 
duty, not only to answer questions, but probably to protect their property. 

I remember these two friends of mine and I went to see these locomotives. We 
climbed all over them and asked all of the questions that we could think of. We then 
started home. I remember looking back and seeing the headlight on one of the locomo- 
tives and said to the friends, "wait a minute; there is one other thing I want to see." I 
went back and climbed up on the cowcatcher and looked in the headlight to see what 
watt bulb was there which would throw that tremendous ray of light for a mile down 
the track on a dark night. I was amazed at what I saw. 

When I went back to my friends, I asked them, "What watt bulb do you suppose 
that is in the headlight of that locomotive?" One said it must have been 750 watts; the 
other said, no, it must be at least 1,000 to make such a light as that. They then asked me 
what was the size. I said, "it is a 25-watt bulb." They said, "Oh, that's just one they put 
there to keep people like you from carrying it away." So back to the engineer's cab we 
went and climbed up. 

I remember asking the engineer, "Is that 25-watt bulb which is in the headlight of 
the locomotive the one that came with it?" He smiled and reached up over his head 
and said, "No, this 15-watt came with it; we just put that big one in ourselves." 

Three confused young ministers left that scene but before long the truth dawned on 
us. It did not make so much difference about the light or the amount of it. The secret was 
was that the light which was there, was set before a brilliant reflector, which picked up 
the light it was able to give and threw it through a great magnifying lens to create the 
powerful beam of light which pierced the darkness ahead. 

Finally the spiritual significance of that fact was revealed. That is what God can do 
with each one of us, if we are willing to place the light which we have in the setting 
which he has prepared. 

Here are these men who have placed themselves in God's setting. They are God's 
servants. They have fought nobly and well through the day. They are God's servants 
and now God lias called them to their reward. Is it too much to think, today, that these 
Western North Carolina Conference veteran servants are attending their first heavenly 
annual conference and receiving once again their appointments on a new and higher 
level of service? Certainly they now know what it really means to be in "Full Connec- 
tion."

Bishop, the Conference Secretary, the Chairman of the Conference Enter- 
tainment Committee, the Host District Superintendents, the Host Pastors, 
the Conference Lay Leader and the Chairman of the Commission on Wor- 
ship." This amendment, upon recommendation of the Committee on Rules, 
passed. 

(2) Under Section V, sub-section G. Delete the existing paragraph and 
substitute the following: "In view of the obvious difficulties and inequities 
involved in singling out one or more of the deceased ministers or laymen for 
special memorial recognition, and of the impracticality of so honoring all 
such persons worthy of special recognition, the Conference Journal shall not 
be dedicated to the memory of any deceased person. Upon recommendation 
of the Committee on Rules this amendment was adopted. 

(3) Under 11- A, add a new paragraph numbered 5 which shall read as 
follows: "Any member of the Conference, minister or lay delegate, who ab- 
sents himself from the Conference sessions without permission shall forfeit 
his claim for per diem for that day." The Committee on Rules agreed with 
the spirit of this amendment but felt that it should be studied with th :

into final form before adoption. The Conference referred this amendmnt to 
the Committee on Rules for study and to report to the 1966 Conference.

"six weeks" and adding the following sentence: "and a copy shall be mailed 
to each ministerial member of the Conference and each elected lay delegate 
at least two weeks prior to the convening of the Conference." The Rules- 
Committee was in harmony with this amendment but felt that it should be 
studied after consultation with the Commission on World Service and Fi- 
nance, the chairmen of Conference Boards and Commissions and the Con- 
ference Secretary. R. Powell Majors spoke of some problems involved, and 
upon motion of the Secretary, this amendment was referred to the Commit-

RESOLUTION OF APPRECIATION 

The holding of an annual conference is a responsibility, however pleasant, of great 
magnitude. To hold a correlated series of events with great diversity in an effective and 
rewarding fashion entails the finest efforts of many agencies, boards, and individuals. 
We should be remiss in a glaring way if we did not express our appreciation to the 
many who have given leadership of commendable quality to the holding of the 1965 
session nf the Western Nortli Carolina Conference. 

We have felt deep appreciation for the masterful understanding portrayed by Bishop 
Hunt as he has conducted the affairs of the Conference. After months of almost unbe- 
lievably inclusive work throughout the Annual Conference, he has handled the affairs 
of the sessions with an understanding and composure, which bespeaks his worthiness to 
lead this Conference to new effectiveness. On each occasion when he has spoken to us 
we have felt much inspiration and a deep uplift.

Our host districts, Marion and Thomasville, the superintendents of these districts, 
Rev. Charles Shannon and Dr. Herman Nicholson, and the host ministers, Rev. Earl 
Brendall and Rev. Julian Lindsey, are to be commended for their work in this important 
aspect of entertaining the Conference. The ministers, ministers' wives, and lay members 
of the host districts who gave time in numerous assignments worked effectively and 
gladly. This we greatly appreciate. The choirs from the host churches, which held prac- 
tice sessions and came to Lake Junaluska at their own expense to provide music for the 
Sunday service, blessed us by their presentations. We are indebted to them. We also 
acknowledge the splendid leadership of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Easter who worked in each 
session of the Conference as director of music and organist,. The double quartet also 
added greatly to several sessions by the special music which was provided. 

The staff of the Lake Junaluska Assembly, long before we arrived, made detailed and 
highly acceptable plans for the entertainment of the delegates and arranged other things 
which have contributed to the pleasure of th Conference. We express unreserved appre- 
ciation to Dr. Fowler and his staff. 

Our Conference preacher, Dr. Robert Goodrich, inspired us as expected in speaking 
to matters of great concern to us today. To him, and to the several others, who effectively 
spoke to the Conference, we acknowledge a lasting indebtedness. 

The several news media which reported significant events of the Conference did so 
in a way which conveyed understanding and constructive reporting. We commend these 
people for this service. 

It is a matter of great significance to us that we have been able to meet together, 

agree on many things, disagree in friendship and Christian love on others, and depart 

to our places of service as ministers and lay leaders bound in and sustained by the love 

of God in Christ Jesus, and the abiding fellowship which is always to be found in the 

ranks of Methodism. D r ,, , ... ,

Reports 

Report A 
COMMISSION ON WORLD SERVICE AND FINANCE 

As we come to the close of the first year of this quadrennium, your Commission is 
very appreciative of the Conference-wide acceptance of the new Single Figure Ap- 
portionment which was introduced and accepted hy the 1964 Annual Conference. 
This new approach to our Conference Appropriations has met widi enthusiastic approval 
from all areas of the Conference and has brought a number of inquiries from other 
conferences who have expressed an interest in presenting a new and different approach 
to apportionments in their respective conferences. 

We recommend the continuance of the "Single Figure Apportionment" as outlined 
under "Other Recommendations" and we look forward to a more complete understand- 
ing of the processes involved. 

Your Commission has again reviewed the needs and requests from the several 
Commissions, Boards and Agencies of the Church, looking toward their being ade- 
quately financed for the year 1965-1966. We are ever mindful of the responsibility 
which is ours as we endeavor to recommend to the Annual Conference equitable 
provision for their financial needs during the coming year. We are also aware of the 
tremendous responsibility to our people, in that we should not make recommendations 
beyond the capabilities of the local church to meet its apportionment in full. We 
have, accordingly, prepared our recommendations with all of these factors of responsi- 
bility in mind and herewith submit our report and recommendations which represent 
what we believe to be a reasonable increase of about 2.27% over the 1964-1965 
recommendations. 

It is hoped, and we confidently believe, that the response of die local church will 
continue to enable this Conference and The Methodist Church ever to press forward 
in the work of the Church and its ministry to the people. 

We further recommend, the continuance of an excellent response to Mission 
Specials and again urge every church to participate in the expansion of our program 
of Missions, the support of which is greatly enlarged through inclusion of Advance 
Specials in the budget of the local church. 

We recommend the following apportionments to the various districts- 

Albemarle District $ 153,400.00 

Asheville District 224,000.00 

Charlotte District 400,600.00 

Gastonia District 267,400.00

Duke Divinity School 10,000.00

Total $2,930,000.00 

We recommend that the apportionments for the year 1965-1966, to the various 
charges and districts of die Conference, be a Single Figure Apportionment, and that 
the Single Figure Apportionment include World Service, Ministerial Support, Minimum 



Western North Carolina Conference 141 

Salary Fund, College Fund, Home for the Aged, Conference Expenses, Conference 
Operating and Moving Fund, Student Day, Race Relations, Golden Cross, Rally Day, 
Children's Home, Commitment Day. 

We further recommend the following as the basis for die apportionment: 

1. Of die total apportionment, 25% shall be based on membership. 

2. Of the total apportionment, 75% shall be based on Total Giving, (Rem 78 of 
Pastor's Report), less items 44 and 45 of Pastor's Report as recorded in the 1964 Journal. 

3. That no charge be apportioned an amount less dian 3% above die amount of 
the 1964-1965 apportionment and diat no charge be apportioned more dian 10% above 
the 1964-1965 apportionment. 

4. That the basis for die computation of 25% on membership and 75% on net total 
giving, shall be the reports as they appear in the 1964 Conference Journal. 

5. That all apportionments be adjusted to the nearest even $100.00. 

6. That if the 3% adjusted apportionment should exceed the 10% maximum increase, 
then the 3% increase shall prevail. 

OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. That all monies for World Service, Conference Renevolences, Inter-Denomina- 
tional Co-operation Fund, General Administration Fund, Jurisdictional Conference 
Expense, Conference 0P eratm g an d Moving Fund, District Superintendents' Fund, 
Episcopal Fund, Conference Claimants' Fund, Minimum Salary Fund, Ministerial 
Education Fund, Student Day, Race Relations, Board of Education, Golden Cross, 
Children's Home, Home for the Aged and Wesley Nursing Center, Rally Day, Com- 
mitment Day, and all other amounts included in the foregoing recommended appropri- 
ations be handled through the Conference Treasurer. 

2. That all Boards and Commissions whose annual appropriations are $5,000.00 
or less shall use die Conference Treasurer as fiscal agent in order to save die expense 
of separate audits and bonds. All other Boards and Commissions with appropriations of 
more than $5,000.00 are audiorized and encouraged to use the Conference Treasurer 
as their fiscal agent; this will tend to reduce the expense of handling as well as the 
audit and bond expense. 

3. We recommend diat die Board of Pensions be authorized to continue the 
Restrictive Pension Fund and diat the investment committee appointed by the Bishop 
and his Cabinet in accordance with the action of the 1962 Annual Conference, be 
continued, and that the Board of Pensions again be audiorized to place in the Restrictive 
Reserve Pension Fund as much as 13.9% of the appropriation. That die Restrictive 
Reserve Pensions Fund of the Board of Pensions may be used should the Conference 
elect to change die Current Pension Plan to the Reserve Pension Plan of The Methodist 
Church, or such odier plan as may be approved by die Annual Conference. That the 
Board of Pensions, on action of the Annual Conference, may use for current pensions 
in any conference year die interest plus 10% of the Restricted Pension Fund, in case 
of emergency. 

4. That the annual salary of each district superintendent be set at $9,800.00. 

5. That all special offerings received for Student Day, Rally D'ay, Race Relations, 
Commitment Day and Golden Cross be sent to the Conference Treasurer to be applied 
on the Single Figure Apportionment to die charge. We recommend that the observance 
of special days and special offerings be optional with the local church. The following 
special days are recommended for observance with special emphasis being given to the 
importance of the individual cause: 

Student Day— June 13, 1965 
Race Relations — February 13, 1966 
Golden Cross — Month of November 1965 
Church School Rally Day— September 19, 1965 
Commitment Day — December 5, 1965 

Should the special offerings received for these causes exceed the amount of the 
apportionment to the charge and should die charge wish to have the excess directed 
to the cause, this may be done by properly advising the Conference Treasurer to this 
effect; otherwise, the entire amount received from the special offering will be applied 
to the total "Single Figure Apportionment" to die charge for the year. 



142 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

The Single Figure Apportionment is not to include any Mission Specials, either 
Conference, National or World Missions. The Commission recommends the continuing 
of the acceptance of Mission Specials in the local church and urges that special 
emphasis be given this phase of our total giving and urges further that these amounts 
be greatly increased during the quadrennium. 

6. That die Board of Missions continue to administer the Minimum Salary Fund 
and diat the Minimum Salary Schedule as presented by die Commission on Minimum 
Salary be approved. 

7. That the amount of $30,000.00 included in die recommended appropriations for 
Duke Divinity School and Candler School of Theology be divided between the 
two schools on the basis of the number of Methodist students in candidacy for the 
Bachelor of Divinity degree who were enrolled in each institution during the quad- 
rennium 1960-1964. 

8. That the amounts received for the Home for the Aged and die Wesley Nursing 
Center be divided as follows: 80% to the charitable work of the Home for the Aged; 
20% to die Wesley Nursing Home's Charity Work, exclusively for Methodists. If die 
local church wishes to pay the Home amounts in excess of the apportioned amount, 
this may be done by forwarding such amounts to die Conference Treasurer widi 
appropriate advice. 

The Board of Managers of die Home shall be granted die further privilege of 
soliciting and receiving freewill contributions in keeping with the Discipline, the 
Commission's recommendation, and the specific advice of the presiding Bishop for the 
purpose of retiring the remaining indebtedness on Wesley Nursing Center and purposes 
related to serving more aging people more adequately. 

9. That from the Moving Fund, pastors moving at the beginning of the 1965-1966 
Conference Year shall be paid $25.00 plus 60c per mile on the basis of the distance 
between die two points. Pastors transferring into this Conference, a new pastor to his 
first appointment, pastors retiring at the 1965 Annual Conference and widows of 
pastors passing during the 1965-1966 Conference Year shall be paid $25.00 plus 60c 
per mile on die basis of the distance between the two points, except that payments 
to these shall be limited to $75.00. The $75.00 maximum shall also apply to pastors 
accepting or being assigned to points outside the boundaries of the Conference. Pastors

the District Missions Society at least $1.00 per member for Church Extension and 
that each District Missions Society transmit 10% of its receipts to the Conference Board 
of Missions. 

15. That the Chairman of the Commission on World Service and Finance, along 
with the Vice-Chairman, Secretary, and the Conference Treasurer shall be named as 
the Executive Committee of the Commission.

We have examined the books and records of Mr. F. D. Russell, Treasurer of the West- 
ern North Carolina Conference, for the Conference Year 1964-1965. Our examination was 
made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and accordingly included 
such tests of the accounting records and such other procedures as we considered neces- 
sary. In our opinion, the foregoing statements reflect the financial transactions of the 
Conference for the year 1964-1965 and the cash balance at May 31, 1965.

Report B 
COMMISSION ON CHRISTIAN VOCATIONS 

The duties and responsibilities of The Conference Commission on Christian Voca- 
tions and die Local Church Committee on Christian Vocations as outlined by the 
Interboard Committee on Christian Vocations is as follows: (a) to co-operate with the 
Interboard Committee on Christian Vocations, with the District Committees on Christian 
Vocations, and with the Committee on Christian Vocations in every local church; 
(b) to promote among youth and adults a philosophy of Christian Vocation that 
recognizes the potential sacredness of all useful work and all opportunities for Christian 
life service; (c) to organize a program for presenting to youth and adults the opportuni- 
ties and claims of the pastoral ministry and other church-related vocations; (d) to take 
into account the basic interests and aptitudes of interested youth and adults and 
inform them of die necessary preparation for specific church vocations; (e) to keep 
accurate and useful records of each youth who has indicated an interest in church 
vocations from die time of his first commitment until he is appointed to full-time 
work in the church, or until such time as responsibility for him is accepted by the 
proper conference board or commission. 

I. THE PAST YEAR 

The activities and programs of the year just closing of your Conference Commission 
on Christian Vocations included the following: 

1. Guidance and Testing Clinics were held at Pfeiffer College, Greensboro College 
and First Church, Hickory. A total of 91 high school juniors and seniors were tested 
and counseled concerning their vocational choice. These clinics were under the direc- 
tion of Rev. A. James Clemmer, ably assisted by the efficient personnel of our colleges. 

2. Our District Directors have conducted Vocations Conferences or Seminars in 
the several districts of the Conference. These were planned with the needs of die 
individual district in mind; but die main aim of each was to reach young people and 
adult counselors with die need for more commitments to church-related vocations. 
One district conducted a travel tour to our Conference institutions. 

In those districts reporting, 846 youth were involved, with 53 definite commitments 
to church-related vocations recorded. 

3. The Booklet, "Methodist Church-Related Vocations," has been widely distributed 
throughout the districts. 

4. The Audio-Visual materials have been in constant use by local churches and 
districts. These are available from the chairman of the commission, 223 Hillside Street, 
Asheville, N. C. 

5. The full membership of the Commission met last September to plan die year's 
work, and to lay some long-range plans. 



164 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

6. The chairman of the Commission attended die National Convocation for Chris- 
tian Vocations annual conference chairmen in St. Louis, Missouri, November 5-8. 

II. PROJECTED PLANS 

1. To enlarge the number of Guidance and Testing Clinics to meet die needs of 
our young people. This year we had to turn down enough young people to fill another 
clinic. 

2. We desire to work, as a Commission concerned with recruitment and enlistment of 
young people for the ministry, with the Board of Ministerial Training in the ten Confer- 
ences or Workshops on die Call to die Ministiy to be held in October of tiiis conference 
year. 

3. We anticipate a joint meeting of die Commissions on Christian Vocations of the 
Western N. C. Conference and die N. C-Virginia Conference of the Central Jurisdiction 
during the coming year. 

4. The Commission will meet in September to lay plans for the Commission's work. 

III. RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. We recommend continuation of district conferences or seminars on Christian 
Vocations, for young people and adult counselors, with special emphasis upon church- 
related vocations. 

2. We recommend the continued use of our audio-visual aids to promote Christian 
Vocations in our local churches. 

3. We recommend to every pastor die use of the "three-booklet kit," "You and 
Your Life Work," in counseling with youdi and parents on vocations. 

4. We recommend extensive distribution and use of "Mediodist Church-Related 
Vocations and Service Projects" booklet in the districts and local churches. 

5. We propose to work closely widi our colleges in die presentation of church-related 
vocational information to our college students. 

6. We strongly recommend and urge every local church to form a committee on 
Christian Vocations, or in lieu of a committee, to name a secretary of Christian Voca- 
tions as a contact person for die district director of vocations; and we request every 
district superintendent to call for such a committee to be elected at the Fourth Quarterly 
Conference. 

7. We recommend that all pastors keep a watchful eye on such young people as 
may show interest in church-related vocations, especially the ministiy, to the end that 
diey may counsel with diese young people, p resenting the need for more commitments 
to church-related vocations, emphasizing God's claim upon dieir lives, and helping 
them to give proper response to God's Call. 

8. We recommend that every district director and pastor become acquainted widi 
the guidance personnel in our public schools in their respective districts or communities, 
in order to encourge the incorporation of church vocations into dieir vocations confer- 
ences, career days, etc. 

9. We recommend that every pastor supply the district director widi die names of 
those youth who are committed to church-related vocations, and that the district 
director in turn supply the Commission chairman with diese names, and their vocational 
choice, so that follow-up may be made to get these names to the proper board or 
agency. 

10. We request the Conference to approve Kelley R. Jones, Fred A. Carlisle, Jr., and 
J. Edwin Carter as members of our Commission.

Report C 
COMMISSION ON METHODIST INFORMATION 

The Office of Methodist Information for the Charlotte Area completed its fourth 
year of service to the Western North Carolina Conference with die close of this 
conference year. 

The press and public relations operation for the Conference was begun May 15, 
1961, by Bishop Nolan B. Harmon, who was presiding over the Charlotte Area. He 
formed an advisory committee of North Carolina newspaper, radio, television and 



Western North Carolina Conference 165 

public relations individuals, headed by Holt McPherson, editor of The High Point Enter- 
prise, and at that time vice-president of the national Office of Methodist Information 
and Public Relations. 

This advisory committee and Bishop Harmon appointed as director for the Office 
of Mediodist Information, John L. Borchert of Charlotte, who was then serving as 
religion editor of The Charlotte News. Mr. Borchert continues as director. 

In 1963 a Commission on Methodist Information was formed out of the advisory 
committee. The committee and now the Commission, directs the operation of the 
Office of Methodist Information through policies approved during annual meetings. 
The officers of the Commission for the 1964-68 quadrennium include: 

Holt McPherson of High Point, chairman; John Paul Lucas of Charlotte, vice 
president of Duke Power Co., vice president; Fred D. Russell of Charlotte, vice 
president of the Bank of Commerce, and Conference treasurer, as treasurer of the 
Commission; and John Borchert, secretary and director. 

The Office of Methodist Information carries out the three functions of reporting 
news, providing training in public relations and serving as an information center, as 
outlined in the Methodist Discipline. 

The Office of Methodist Information has established clergymen in the role of 
district directors of Methodist Information. And the Information service cooperates 
widr the Television, Radio and Film Commission, the Commission on Promotion and 
Cultivation, and the North Carolina Christian Advocate. 

News releases of major Conference events are sent to principal newspaper, television 
and radio sources as well as national Methodist publications and conference newspapers 
and Area Methodist Information offices. 

Personal mailings of all news releases go to chairmen and presidents of conference 
boards and commissions, conference officers, the cabinet, the presiding bishop and to 
the district directors of Methodist Information, as well as public relations departments 
of conference-related colleges and universities. 

News stories are based on information received from the various boards and com- 
missions, or from on-the-spot coverage of news-making events by the director.

Report D 
COMMISSION ON MINIMUM SALARY 

I. Composition and Purpose 

A. The Commission on Minimum Salary of the Western North Carolina Conference 
shall be composed of the Executive Committees of the Board of Lay Activities, the 
Board of Missions, and the Commission on Town and Country Work; two district 
superintendents appointed by the Bishop and two district lay leaders appointed by the 
Conference lay leader, the Director of Church Extension of the Conference, the 
treasurer of the Conference, and the Director of the Work of the Rural Church under 
the Duke Endowment. 

After the Conference has determined the minimum salary schedule and the 
bishop has made the appointments, the treasurer of the Commission on Minimum 
Salary shall make its payments according to the scale fixed by the Conference. 

B. The Commission shall study all matters pertaining to the Minimum Salary 
Program, prepare reports, and make recommendations concerning policy, procedure, 
and schedule of payments to be adopted by the Annual Conference. 

The Minimum Salary Program is designed to provide a minimum salary; which 
is not considered an adequate salary. A fully adequate salary should be expected 
of and paid by the pastoral charge in every instance possible. The Commission dis- 
approves the creation of pastoral charges, by division or otherwise, that will require 
Minimum Salary funds except in such cases where there may be created charges 
which give promise of a fully adequate salary within a reasonable length of time. 

We call attention, with gratitude, that the response of pastoral charges has made it 
possible to increase the Minimum Salary schedule regularly. Both the number of 
charges receiving assistance and the overall expenditure must be decreased as rapidly 
as possible while at the same time developing a sound program of ministerial support 
and increasing the basic Minimum Salary schedule. 



166 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

II. Recommendations 

We recommend that: 

A. The Western North Carolina Conference adopt the policy of arranging pastoral 
charges so that, in every instance possible, the pastoral charge will have a minimum 
of 300 members with the number of churches such that they can be served adequately 
and efficiently by a fully qualified minister. We recognize that there are situations in 
which tiiis cannot be achieved. The establishment of strong charges is essential not 
only to provide adequate support for the pastor and a full program but also to provide 
a qualified leadership for the church and to build morale among the small and rural 
churches. 

B. Each pastoral charge receiving Minimum Salary Funds adopt as a goal a salary 
ranging from $5,000 up with World Service and Benevolence in proportion. The 
Records of Performance of each church now receiving Minimum Salary funds should 
be studied carefully in cooperation with the Commission on Town and Country Work, 
the district superintendent and the local church. Each church on a circuit should 
develop its own financial program of salary support and benevolence on the basis of 
its potential rather than on an antiquated percentage basis. 

C. For the quadrennium 1964-1968, a goal of $5,000 be set as the basic minimum 
salary for full conference members, married and serving full time, and that the sched- 
ule for Supplies, Approved Supplies and Probationers correspond proportionately on 
basis of present schedule, provided that the total spent will not exceed the amount 
beng spent for the current year ($150,000). 

D. The Minimum Salary schedule be increased $100 in each category for each 
accumulated average increase of $200 in pastoral support reported by the combined 
charges receiving Minimum Salary funds; provided, however, that the total expenditure 
does not exceed the total Minimum Salary gross collected the preceding year. 

E. Special attention be given to pastoral charges of small membership, which 
by virtue of their location, membership potential, and other factors beyond their 
control, must of necessity be supported by Minimum Salary funds for an undetermined 
period of time. These charges deserve quality leadership and must be encouraged to 
participate on a family basis comparable to the rest of the annual conference and 
they must feel that they are "members of the team." The Commission on Town and 
Country Work should be cognizant of these, their needs, etc., and work in close 
relationship with the district superintendent to meet the needs of the charges. 

F. During the conference year there be planned, in cooperation with the district 
superintendents, meetings on "Ministerial Support" at which diere would be displayed 
charts showing Records of Performance, potential growth and patterns of operation. 

G. The Commission on World Service and Finance appropriate $140,000 for die 
year 1965-66 to the Minimum Salary Fund. 

III. Policies 

A. Each pastoral charge to receive Minimum Salary Funds shall be required to 
make application at the Fourtii Quarterly Conference for funds with which to supplement 
the pastor's salary for the following year. The application shall be submitted by the 
district superintendent to the Commission not later than May 15. 

B. Any expense account or other monetary compensation provided the pastor by 
the local pastoral charge shall be counted among the total resources making the total 
minimum salary received by the pastor. 

C. The payments from Minimum Salary Funds shall not exceed die schedule 
adopted by the Conference except as in E, below. 

D. All pastoral charges, except newly established congregations, will be expected 
to pay at least 75% of the total salary with the Commission on Minimum Salary paying 
no more than 25%. Any pastoral charge paying less than 75% must be referred by die 
district superintendent to the Commission on Minimum Salary for joint study. 

E. In newly established congregations all interested agencies should plan together 
thoroughly, making a complete study of community and church potential, and pre- 
senting through the district superintendent, a write-up of needs in terms of pastoral 
leadership and ministerial support not later than the first week in April for review 
and approval. Unless the proposed program is voted both by the Cabinet and the 
Commission to receive special consideration, the following shall prevail: 

I. Minimum Salary Funds may be used up to schedule listed below, but in 
no case may be used for more than 75% of the pastor's salary, provided that each year 
thereafter the congregation shall increase its contribution to the pastor's salary by an 
amount equal to at least 25% of the amount paid by the Commission on Minimum 



Western North Carolina Conference 167 

Salary the first year, so that at the end of not more than four years the congregation 
will be fully self-supporting. 

2. That within the conference year the total amount spent for this purpose 
shall not exceed 8% of the total Minimum Salary gross collected the preceding con- 
ference year, 

3. The pastor appointed shall have had proven experience, including one ox 
more successful pastorates. 

4. If, for any reason, a newly established congregation does not qualify under 
the above, it shall be considered under the regular schedule. 

F. Each charge receiving Minimum Salary Funds is requested to increase the 
pastor's salary by an amount equal to 20% of the Minimum Salary Supplement so that 
at the end of five years it will be completely self-supporting. 

G. Minimum Salary Funds shall be used to pay the salary of ministers assigned to 
serve local pastoral charges only. 

IV. Schedule 

A. Student Pastors: On an adjusted basis up to $3,600, according to the schedule 
adopted by the Commission and furnished the district superintendents. 

B. Retired Supplies: On an adjusted basis: If the total amount received from the 
pastoral charge and die Board of Pensions is less tiian $4,800, the Minimum Salary 
Fund will supplement the salary up to $4,800 provided that the total amount paid 
by the pastoral charge and the Minimum Salary Funds does not exceed $3,000. 

C. Ministers of Newly Established Congregations: Under conditions set forth in 
III-E, above, a graduated salary up to $5,200' with an an increase of $100 per year 
for no more than three years (not retroactive). 

D. Full-time Ministers: Single Married 

Supplies $3800 $4000 

Approved Supplies 4000 4200 

Probationers 4200 4400 

Members of Conference 4400 4600 

E. Part-time supply pastors shall be on adjusted basis. 

F. Supplements: "Years of Service." Full-time Conference members, $100 for each 
full four years of service up to 24 years. Full-time supplies (except Retired Supplies). 
$75 for each four full years of service up to 24 years. The "Years of Service" accredited 
by the Board of Pensions at die time of appointment determine die basis of payment 
throughout die conference year. 

"Dependent Children": All full-time ministers (including Student Supplies) receiving 
Minimum Salary Funds: $150 for each dependent child up to FOUR children. Marital 
status and the number of dependent children at the time of appointment will determine 
the basis of payments throughout the conference year. "Dependent children" are 
defined: 1. Single. 2. Not over 18 years of age, or undergraduate in college and die 
parents furnish more than half the support. 3. Exceptions: Handicapped persons who 
are not capable of self support. 

All payments shall be based on either "Years of Service" or "Dependent Children ' 
whichever is greater, but not on a combination of the two.

Report E 
COMMISSION ON PROMOTION AND CULTIVATION 

The 1960 General Conference of The Methodist Church adopted the resolution that 
in each Annual Conference there be a Commission on Promotion and Cultivation. The 
purpose of the Commission was to promote World Service and the General Benevolence 
causes within the Conference and within the local charge. The Commission has been ac- 
cepting the responsibility for causes that are not clearly assigned to another agency. The 
Commission is ready at all times to aid any cause of the church which may be of help. 

Each year the Commission has been responsible for the publication of a Conference 
calendar. This calendar seeks to list all meetings and programs that are conference, dis- 
trict, or subdistrict-wide. Approximately thirteen hundred copies of the calendar are dis- 
tributed each year. 



L68 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

The General Conference of 1964 has suggested that the Commission on Promotion 
and Cultivation be responsible for the Conference planning and promotion of the quad- 
rennial emphasis, "One Witness in One World." Bishop Earl G. Hunt appointed three 
district superintendents — -Dr. James C. Stokes, Dr. Garland Winkler, and Dr. W. J. Hun- 
eycutt — to work with the Executive Committee of the Commission for such planning. 
Planning and suggestions have been made on the study of Ephesians and the study of 
the book, One Witness In One World, by Bishop Boy Short. Further work is being done 
on the "Neighborhood — 1" program, the ecumenical emphasis and the mission emphasis. 

A joint meeting of Bishop Earl Hunt, the Cabinet, and the Commission was held in 
Hickory, North Carolina on April 5, 1965. At this meeting Bishop Hunt spoke of the work 
of the Personnel Committee of the Conference of which Dr. Frank Jordan is chairman. 
A part of the work of this committee is to make recommendations on an Interboard Coun- 
cil or Coordinating Committee. Bishop Hunt asked the Commission on Promotion and 
Cultivation to accept the work of a Coordinating Council until a further decision may be 
made by the Conference. This assignment was accepted and work is being done in this 
area by the Commission. 

The Commission would like to recommend that each church use the film, And On 
The Eighth Day, produced by the General Commission on Promotion and Cultivation.

Report F 
TELEVISION, RADIO AND FILM COMMISSION 

The Television, Badio and Film Commission of your Conference has been engaged 
at the beginning of tiiis quadrennium in getting acquainted with its prescribed responsi- 
bilities. The way has been paved for us most admirably by the work of the Commission 
during previous years. We are indebted to the Beverend Ernest Fitzgerald, TBAFCO 
chairman for the last quadrennium, for his guidance and counsel to our Commission 
this year. 

Our main project for die past year has been with a new venture into radio broad- 
casting. Methodist TBAFCO has prepared a series of half-hour radio programs designed 
for use by Methodist Ministers entitled "The Word and Music." Working closely with 
Bishop Hunt and the cabinet, more than diirty-five ministers of our Conference were 
selected to receive training in die presentation of this program in early February. 
Since then twelve of these men have gone on the air with diis program across the 
Conference. Here is a list of the radio stations and ministers presenting "The Word 
and Music" to our people: 

WIFM Elian, Bev. Everett Freeman 

WMFB High Point, Bev. George Lyndon, Tr. 

WPTL Canton, Bev. John Hamilton 

WCGC Belmont, Bev. Clyde Collins 

WATA Boone, Bev. Bichard Crowder 

WADE Wadesboro, Bev. Harley Dickson 

WLON Lincolnton, Bev. Bernard Fitzgerald 

WFBC Beidsville, Bev. W. T. Hawkins 

WFSC Franklin, Bev. J. P. Hornbuckle 

WKBK Murphy, Bev. Toel Key 

WMNC-FM Morganton, Bev. Neil E. Smith 

WJBI Lenoir, Bev. John Carper 
We sincerely express appreciation to these radio stations and fine ministers for their 
work in diis field. 

We call your attention to the TBAFCO display at die entrance to Stuart Auditorium. 
Here is revealed the manner in which "The Word and Music" is beginning to cover 
our Conference. We trust that before long the entire conference area will be able to 
hear this fine radio program. We hope that during the new year opportunities for 
training new broadcasters and additional placements of this program will be possible. 

Working on the promotion of diis radio program, we have endeavored to promote 
the Television-Badio Ministry Fund. A World Service Special, the TV-Badio Ministry 
Fund goes directly to the promotion and production of additional broadcast 



Western North Carolina Conference 169 

materials by Methodist TRAFCO. Our goal for this year is four cents per 
member. We do urge the support of the Television-Radio Ministry Fund by each 
church in the Conference. We trust diat in the near future our goal will be realized. 
In view of the high cost of broadcasting, even this amount will not be sufficient to 
meet the challenge of die task of mass communications to the Mediodist Church. 
Progress in this area is dependent upon liberal support efforts in dus field. 

Each local church is asked to set aside an amount in die budget or take a special 
offering for this cause some time during the year. These funds should be sent to the 
conference treasurer and marked "Television-Radio Ministry Fund." 

Looking toward the new conference year, your Commission is now engaged in 
the production of radio spot announcements designed to present to the general popula- 
tion the message of the Board of Evangelism of our Conference in two categories: 
(a) "Why Be A Christian?" and (b) "Why Attend Church?" Our intention is to make 
these tapes or records available to the Board of Evangelism sometime during the next 
year for use on local radio stations. 

Your Commission also will be working on die development of an audio-visual history 
of die Western North Carolina Annual Conference. This will be done in cooperation 
with other agencies of the Conference. Possibly of a half-hour length, this program 
will be made available to local churches for special programs. 

In addition to work in the above areas, your Commission will make available to 
local television stations die entire series of BREAKTHRU upon their request. This 
series now consists of twenty-one half-hour programs and is one of the finest efforts 
of Methodist TRAFCO. We are all proud of this program. 

The field of mass communications is overwhelmingly large. The task of presenting 
effectively die message of Methodism to the general population has been barely 
touched. Thus the challenge resting upon Mediodist TRAFCO and your Commission 
is indeed a huge one. Until better means are devised the use of television and radio 
is still the best avenue to t v e minds and hearts of diose outside the church. We pray 
that this avenue of evangelism will be utilized more fully by our church. 

We thank you for your cooperation and support of our activities during the past year. 
We will endeavor to be faithful to our responsibilities in the years ahead.

Report G 

COMMISSION ON TOWN AND COUNTRY WORK 

The Commission on Town and Country Work is glad to make this report of some of 
its activities and to present its recommendations for the ensuing year. 

Section I 

The Discipline makes the Commission responsible for promoting the work of the 
Church in program areas of town and country responsibility through (1) Research and 
Survey, (2) cooperation with other agencies, and' (3) helping to improve the effective- 
ness of town and country churches and pastors. 

A. Research and Survey 

1. At the request of the district superintendents studies have been made of 
church situations in die Marion and Asheville districts. 

2. Charge boundary studies have been made, at the request of the district 
superintendents in the Statesville, Waynesville and Salisbury districts. 

3. The annual "Records of Financial Performance" were compiled from die 
pastors' reports for 1964. Per member giving for pastor's support, world service and 
current budget was calculated for each church and charge, the district and conference. 
Copies were distributed to the Conference leadership. Per member giving for pastor's 
support averaged $12.50, for World Service and Conference Benevolence $2.98, and 
for current budget $43.72. 

4. An exhibit of the distribution of charges and churches by number of 
members, district and total is made annually and published to the pastors and Con- 
ference leaders. There were 1,150 churches reported in 1964. Of these 383, or one- 



170 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

third, had less than 100 members; 574, or nearly one-half, had less than 150 members; 
and 1,039 had less than 500 members. Of the 650 pastoral charges reported, 258 had 
less than 300 members and 409 had less than 400 members. 

5. The study of the pastors and churches of the Central Jurisdiction that are 
within die bounds of the Western Nordi Carolina Conference, requested by the Board 
of Social Concerns, is continuing. It is hoped that it may be completed soon. 

We recommend (1) that more churches make use of the Commission's services in 
guiding studies to find out how progressive and effective is tiieir work and witness; 
(2) that definite plans be made, in cooperation with the Board of Missions and the 
Appalachian Development Program Committee, to hold a study conference on die 
various aspects of life in both rural and urban areas served by the Western North 
Carolina Conference in February 1964; and (3) that definite effort be made to continue 
to arrange the churches of die Conference in pastoral charges so that, as far as possible, 
each charge will have a minimum of 300 members although 400 or more members in 
each charge is to be desired. 

B. Cooperation With Other Agencies: 

1. The Commission maintains a close working relation with the Office of the 
Work of the Rural Church under the Duke Endowment, the Bishop's Committee on 
Church Architecture, the Nordi Carolina Council of Churches, the Council of the 
Southern Mountains, the Appalachian Development Program Committee, Hinton Rural 
Life Center, area development associations and governmental agencies. 

2. In cooperation with the Board of Lay Activities the Commission processes 
and mails the "Laymen's Bulletin" to the church lay leaders each month. 

3. The Commission cooperated with the Bishop's Committee on Church Archi- 
tecture in preparing a preliminary brochure as a Guide to Procedures in Building 
Methodist Church Buildings. 

4. Support was given the Town and Country Conference on the Church and 
the State of Society sponsored by the North Carolina Council of Churches May 10-11, 
1965. 

5. Seven church and community workers serve in the Conference under the 
Division of National Missions and are members of this Commission. Miss Sarah J. 
McCain of Winder, Georgia, and Miss Rosemaiy Shireman of New Salisbury, Indiana, 
began their work the first of September 1964. Miss McCain is working in the Nordi 
Buncombe-Madison County area and Miss Shireman at Cherokee. Others serving are 
Miss Vera Falls, Cherokee; Miss Carolyn Thorne, Denton area; Miss Shirley McDanicl, 
Greater Mount Airy Parish; Miss Virginia Miller, Macon County; and Mrs. Arthelia 
Brooks, Yancey County. It is hoped that workers might be found for four other areas 
that have requested them. The Commission cooperates in this work by interpreting 
the role of the workers to their area and in other ways. 

We recommend (1) that the Conference continue its cooperation with and support 
of the agencies mentioned above, and (2) that more national advance specials be directed 
to the Hinton Rural Life Center at Hayesville, North Carolina. 

C. Help in Local Church Programs: 

1. Twelve college girls from Brevard, Greensboro, High Point and Pfeiffer 
colleges served 86 weeks in local churches during the summer of 1964 in the Student 
Summer Service Program. Their responsibilities were, principally, with children and 
youth. Several girls who have worked in this program in the past few years are now 
in full-time church-related service. 

2. The observance of Rural Life Sunday and Harvest Festival have been pro- 
moted by the Commission as a recognition, in part, of our dependence upon these who 
till the soil to provide our daily bread. 

3. "Town and Country Topics," the office publication of the Commission, is 
published each month and is sent to the pastors. It is designed to provide them with 
information and materials diey can use. 

4. The Commission, with the cooperation of the Conference Board of Education, 
sponsored ten weeks of special help in February and March 1965 for children's workers 
in small churches by specialists assigned by the General Board of Education: Mrs. 
Ruth Bauer, Baltimore, Maryland, worked four weeks in Ashe County; Mrs. W. L. 
Kennedy, Deland, Florida, two weeks in the North Buncombe-Madison County area; 
and Mrs. Walter E. Shore, Bakersville, California, four weeks in Cherokee, Clay, 
Graham, and Swain counties. 

5. At the request of the district superintendent, the Commission sponsored 
three workshops on Church Music in Surry and Yadkin counties. Mrs. Donald C. Davis,

wife of the pastor at Dobson, was the instructor. These workshops are designed to 
increase and improve congregational singing in small churches. 

6. A second printing of the popular leaflet, "The Parsonage Home," has been 
made. 

We recommend (1) that churches planning to use students in the Student Summer 
Service Program make their requests as early as possible; (2) that more churches, urban 
as well as rural, observe Rural Life Sunday; (3) that a larger number of churches hold 
Bible Conferences and Churchmanship Clinics close to die local church level; (4) that 
increased use be made of the Lord's Acre — Lord's Hour Plan as a means of Christian 
stewardship, worship and evangelism; (5) that more opportunities be provided to meet 
specific needs such as the work with children's workers and the workshops on church 
music, reported above; and (6) diat as town and country churches and dieir admin- 
istrators have needs for specific help they confer with the Commission in order that it 
may help meet them. 

D. Promotion of Programs for Town and Country Churches: 

1. The Conference was represented by Rev. John H. Christy, Jr., Rev. Clegg W. 
Avett, Rev. Garland R. Stafford, Miss Virginia Miller and Miss Sarah McCain at die 
annual meeting of the Southeastern Jurisdiction Town and Country Workers Conference 
at Hinton Rural Life Center, October 1964. The executive secretary of the Commission 
is chairman of the Workers Conference. 

2. The Commission supports the Methodist Rural Fellowship in its work. The 
luncheon last conference was addressed by Dr. M. Wilson Nesbitt who told of the work 
of The Duke Endowment in building and maintaining rural churches. 

We recommend that the Conference continue its participation in and support of 
these programs, and diat it be represented with a full delegation at the Southeastern 
Jurisdiction Town and Country Conference at Lake Junaluska, August 9-13, 1965. 

E. In-Service Training Programs: 

1. Those who made the annual Orientation Tour of our conference institutions 
October 20-22, 1964, were Rev. Homer A. Barker, Rev. Robert W. Combs, Rev. E. S. 
Cook, Rev. W. Pleas Elder, Rev. B. A. Haire, Rev. L. P. Henderson, Rev. T. J. Howard, 
Rev. John W. Kale, Rev. F. K. Macon, Rev. G. Roland Mullinix, Rev. Paul V. Ridenhour, 
Rev. C. L. Sides, Rev. Thomas R. Sigmon, Rev. Glenn F. Stevens and Rev. G. B. 
Tomlinson. Rev. C. W. Avett, chairman of the Commission Committee on In-service 
Training, accompanied the tour. They received enthusiastic welcome at Hugh Chatham 
Memorial Hospital, Brevard College, The Methodist Home and Wesley Nursing Center, 
The Children's Home, Greensboro College, High Point College, Pfeiffer College and 
the North Carolina Christian Advocate plant. 

2. Upon the recommendation of the executive secretary five pastors serving 
rural churches attended the Duke Divinity School Summer Clinics on the Rural Church 
July 20-31, 1964. Others attended the Clinics on Pastoral Care and on Preaching. 

3. Several in-service training programs supported by The Duke Endowment 
have been sponsored and conducted by the Commission: 

a. A Clinic on Planning the Program of the Local Church, led by Dr. H. 
Conrad Hoyer of the National Council of Churches, was held at Davidson Mediodist 
Church, September 14-15, 1964. Twenty-nine pastors attended. 

b. A Clinic on the Renewal of the Church Through Group Dynamics was 
held for twenty-one pastors October 5-6, 1964, under the leadership of Dr. Earl D. C. 
Brewer of Emory University. 

c. Five Clinics on Communication and Personal Relations were held March 
29-April 2, 1965, in Statesville, Thomasville, North Wilkesboro, Marion and Winston- 
Salem districts, respectively, under the leadership of Dr. J. W. Sells, Executive Secretary 
of the Southeastern Jurisdictional Council. Two hundred fourteen pastors attended. 

d. Nine pastors, one district superintendent and one church and community 
worker attended die Annual Conference of the Council of the Southern Mountains in 
Chattanooga, Tennessee, April 20-23, 1965. 

We recommend (1) that the Conference cooperate with the Church and Community 
Workshop at Emory University July 6-16, 1965, and the Summer Clinics at Duke 
University, July 19-30, 1965, and that more pastors be encouraged to take advantage 
of all such in-service training opportunities; (2) that every pastor serving his first full- 
time appointment in the Western North Carolina Conference take die Orientation 
Tour of our conference institutions within his first four years of full-time service, and 
we request the Bishop and his Cabinet to give their support to this program; and (3) 
that pastors use the following in-service training opportunities in addition to those just 



172 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

mentioned: Clinic on Planning the Program of the Local Church, September 13-14, 
1965; the Methodist Rural Fellowship Retreat September 27-28, 1965; Clinic on the 
Renewal of the Church Through Group Dynamics October 4-5, 1965; Laboratory 
School on Church Membership Classes October 4-8, 1965; Fifth Orientation Tour, 
October 19-21, 1965; and the National Convocation on the Church in Town and 
Country, and a Workshop on Statistical Method and Interpretation, both of which are 
to be scheduled, and that these be open to laymen as far as practicable. 

F. Area Service Ministries: 

1. In the Conference these cooperative endeavors have taken the form of group 
ministries. A group ministry is a group of churches and their pastors voluntarily co- 
operating to serve their area. They do together what can be done best together but 
are free to do separately what can be: done best separately. The Commission maintains 
regular contact with these group ministries, gives guidance in organization and program 
and receives reports annually. 

2. Sixty-five leaders in the fourteen group ministries in the Conference and 
visitors attended a three-day Cooperative Ministry Conference at Lake Junaluska, 
September 2-4, 1964. Leadership included Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr., Dr. M. Wilson 
Nesbitt, and Dr. Daniel M. Shores. 

3. Two new group ministries were organized in November bringing the total to 
sixteen: Gaston and Central Lincoln. 

4. The executive secretary of the Commission spoke to a meeting of die 
Tennessee Conference on die group ministry in November. 

We recommend that other pastors and churches look with favor upon using the 
group ministry approach in cooperative endeavors, and that all such area service 
ministries be registered widi die district superintendent of dieir area and with the 
Commission on Town and Country Work. 

We recommend that Garland R. Stafford be appointed Executive Seeretaiy of die 
Commission for die ensuing year.

Section II 
THE APPALACHIAN DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 

Nationwide attention to the Appalachian region reveals not only the educational 
and economic needs but also the challenging and exciting opportunity for the church 
to guide in die establishment of the moral and spiritual foundation and motivation for 
any permanent betterment of life. (Methodism and particularly the Western North 
Carolina Conference has a distinct contribution to make.) The National Division of 
the Board of Missions, charged by the General Conference widi the responsibility of 
developing and executing the program, has set up an Appalachian Development Com- 
mittee and has selected as one of the focal points of operation the Hinton Rural Life 
Center which is located within die bounds of our Annual Conference. In addition there 
are several cooperative programs on a county or area basis within the Appalachian 
area of our conference that give promise of providing opportunities for developing signi- 
ficant programs. 

It is the conviction of your Annual Conference Committee that the program which 
may evolve will provide policies, procedures, and content for programs in any geographi- 
cal area which may have comparable characteristics and needs. Likewise, we believe 
that the contribution which the peoples of Appalachia have made and can make to the 
nation and to the church will be just as significant as the nation's and church's contri- 
bution to Appalachia. 

We recommend: 

1. That the Western North Carolina Conference cooperate fully with Method- 
ism's total program in Appalachia; 

2. That the churches and ministers of each comity within the Appalachian 
area work together as a county unit to become familiar with and to participate in 
such programs that may be sponsored by the Federal, State and local governments and 
community agencies as well as those sponsored by the church; and 

3. That all churches give extended and intensive study to the nature and 
mission of the church and the task of the ministry in the rapidly changing culture. 

4. That the Committee call togedier leaders from diroughout the Appalachian 
ana in North Carolina for a study conference in the fall of 1965. 

We request that the Bishop and die Cabinet; 



Western North Carolina Conference 173 

1. Give attention to the assigning, in selected areas of Appalachia, of those 
ministers who by virtue of their preparation and preference, have a distinct contribution 
to make to the area. 

2. Endeavor to make it possible, in cooperation with the conference agencies, 
for ministers who so desire to continue to serve in mountain counties. 

3. Give leadership to die enhancement of any and all appointments, regardless 
of geographical location.

Report H 
COMMISSION ON WORSHIP 

We are witnessing throughout Christendom a widespread revival of interest in cor- 
porate worship which is reflected in both Protestant and Catholic circles. The challenge 
of secularism and the insecurity of present day life; our awareness of a need for help 
beyond ourselves in this age of sustained crisis; and the rapid growth of the ecumenical 
movement has made us less provincial and more aware of many traditions of Christian 
worship from which we may profitably borrow. 

It was this growing demand for strengthening the service of worship that prompted 
the General Conference of 1960 to adopt for trial use a proposed revision of The Book of 



174 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

Worship to be used during the 1960-1964 quadrennium. As a result of its trial value, 
many suggestions were offered. It was through such a process that the General Commis- 
sion on Worship submitted to the General Conference of 1964 a new Book of Worship 
which was adopted. 

Worship is, and should be, the central act of the Christian church. Its aim is to bring 
men into a vital relationship with God through the divine services of the church. As we 
make use of the new material provided in The Book of Worship and The Methodist 
Hymnal, let us remember that the primary emphasis is placed not upon the performance 
of the minister but rather upon the participation of the people in worship. This change 
of emphasis is reflected, not only in the new Order of Worship, but also in the Order for 
the Administration of the Sacrament of Baptism, Confirmation and Reception into the 
Church, and the Administration of the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Much emphasis 
has been put upon congregational participation — the general confession, the singing of 
hymns, the praying of prayers, the reading of scripture, the Affirmation of Faith. The new 
orders of worship for Methodists are services that demand participation — participation 
in the corporate worship of God. 

An active Commission on Worship in the local church can do much toward restoring 
worship to its proper place in the life of the church. There is an increasing demand for 
worship workshops, and training school courses on worship and hymnody. Although the 
Commission on Worship in the local church is an optional commission, reports indicate 
that the number of such commissions is increasing every year. Your Conference Commis- 
sion on Worship requests that such a comumission be organized in every church, whether 
large or small. 

Such a Commission on Worship should be interested with everything that has to do 
with worship in the church. The Commission on Worship should expand its duties to 
include cultivating in the congregation an understanding of worship and worship prac- 
tices, for a congregation can better participate in the worship service if it understands 
the meaning and purpose of worship. 

May we suggest some of the areas that could well be a part of the Commission's re- 
sponsibility .... 

1. Music: Music has been a part of man's worship in every culture — from the most 
primitive to the most civilized. The many references to music in the Bible and through- 
out the history of the church show the importance of its place in worship. The "people 
called Methodists" are particularly blessed with a heritage of music as a vital part of 
worship. It should be a function of the Commission on Worship to provide not only neces- 
sary instruments and leadership, but also to include Christian Hymnody in the educa- 
tional program of the church. 

2. Ushers: The usher performs a role of vital significance in the service of worship. 
He greets the worshippers at the door, conducts them to their seats, distributes bulletins, 
and is constantly alert to the needs of the people and to any emergency that may arise. 
He is sensitive to changing physical conditions such as heat, ventilation and lights. He 
directs communicants to the chancel in an orderly fashion and escorts candidates for 
baptism to the font. The Commission on Worship should be interested in the work of 
the ushers and offer all assistance possible. 

3. Altar Guild: With our increasing interest in worship, many of our churches are 
forming Altar Guilds. This is another function that could well come under the responsi- 
bility of the Commission on Worship of the local church. Its underlying function is to 
assist in creating and maintaining a climate of worship for the congregation. Through 
studies of liturgy and worship forms it develops a sense of what is conducive to worship. 
Once the Guild understands its function to be that of an aid to worship, the use of can- 
dles, hangings, flowers, and all the other symbols is recognized for what it is — an ex- 
pression of what we believe, and not mere decoration. The Guild becomes concerned, 
not so much with making the chancel attractive, as with making it meaningful to the 
worship of God. While the work of the Altar Guild is more than housekeeping, it cer- 
tainly is housekeeping as well. It is usually responsible for the care of the chancel and its 
furnishings, the communion ware and linens, the vestments for the minister and acolytes 
— and also for the choir vestments as well. 

During the past year your Conference Commission on Worship co-sponsored with the 
Conference Board of Education ( Music Division — NaFOMM ) the annual Music-Worship 
Institute which was held October 9-10 at Myers Park Methodist Church, Charlotte. The 
Commission was represented at the Church Ushers' Conference which was held last sum- 
mer at Lake Junaluska, the Bishop's Committee on Church Architecture in Durham, and 



Western North Carolina Conference 175 

sent two representatives to the Southeastern Jurisdictional Worship Fellowship which 
met in Atlanta last April. 

We plan to hold, with the approval of the district superintendents, worship work- 
shops in every district during the coming year. We feel that such workshops are essential 
at this time because of the revival of interest in worship throughout our Conference, and 
as a result of the publication of The Book of Worship and the new Methodist Hymnal. 
Our appropriation is inadequate for such a project, but your Commission feels that it 
would be derelict in its duties (as set forth in Paragraph 1571, Section 2, 3 a, b, c, and 
d, of the. Discipline of The Methodist Church, 1964 edition) if it allowed insufficient 
funds to prevent the completion of its assigned mission. 

Finally, your Commission on Worship would like to make certain recommendations 
for your consideration and adoption: 

1. We urge our ministers and church musicians to attend the Biennial Convocation 
of the National Fellowship of Methodist Musicians ( NaFOMM ) which will be held at 
Salem College, Winston-Salem, August 4-11, 1965. This is the first time that NaFOMM 
has met in North Carolina. Under the leadership of nationally-known musicians, conduc- 
tors, composers, editors and authors, this Convocation should receive our enthusiastic 
support. The annual Music-Workshop Institute, which heretofore has been jointly spon- 
sored by the Board of Education and the Commission on Worship, will not be held this 
year since the NaFOMM Convocation will meet within the bounds of the Western North 
Carolina Conference. 

2. We recommend that our churches make plans to procure, as soon as possible, an 
adequate supply of the revised Book of Worship. This well-arranged volume contains 
orders of worship, services for the administration of the sacraments, and aids to worship 
according to the usages of The Methodist Church. It has been enthusiastically received 
by both ministers and congregations. Of especial interest is the Order for the Administra- 
tion of the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper or Holy Communion, which in its revised 
form is unified, ordered, and effective. We trust that every Methodist minister will rally 
his congregation and use this order in its complete form. We should be wary of arbitrary 
changes, substitutions and deletions. God deserves our best, and this new order will unite 
and edify us. 

3. We recommend that our churches make plans now to purchase the new Methodist 
Hymnal which will be available in March of 1966. The new Hymnal combines the rich 
heritage of the past with a variety of hymns and worship aids. More Wesley hymns have 
been added, older hymns not in the present Hymnal have been restored, and twenty-six 
new hymns by contemporary writers have been included. The new Book of Worship and 
the new Methodist Hymnal are companion volumes and are bound in either liturgical 
purple or liturgical red. 

4. We urge that our churches send delegates to the Church Ushers' Conference which 
will be held at Lake Junaluska, June 25-27. An excellent program has been arranged 
which will be of interest to ushers of local churches. 

5. We recommend to the Conference that consideration be given to the report of the 
Bishop's Committee on Preaching to include a representative of the Commission on Wor- 
ship as a member (or trustee) of the Institute for Homiletical Studies of the Western 
North Carolina Conference. 

Respectfully submitted, 
TAMES B. McLARTY, Chairman 
PAUL D. LOWDER, Secretary 
Adopted: Morning Session, June 12, 1965. 

Report I 
BOARD OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL CONCERNS 

The Board of Christian Social Concerns is charged with one of the major areas 
of service in our church. Not only is the area of service extensive, it is one of the most 
crucial and challenging areas in the church today. To fail to relate the gospel we 
preach to tire life of the people would be a radical departure from the historic purposes 
of our church and we believe would lead to a disintegration of our effectiveness as a 
vital force in the world. 

Since the merger of the Board of Temperance, the Board of Social and Economic 
Relations, and the Committee on World Peace into the Board of Christian Social 
Concerns the need for a full-time Executive Secretary for this board' has been keenly 



176 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

felt. The request for such an officer was first presented to the Commission on World 
Service and Finance at the Annual Conference in June of 1960. Since that time the 
request has been repeated annually. The need for this full-time officer continues to 
grow. Therefore, once more your Conference Board of Christian Social Concerns 
earnestly renews its request for an Executive Secretary. 

In the light of the fact that a Study of Conference Personnel is promised, we are 
willing to cooperate with this constructive step, however, we do request that in any 
realignment of Conference personnel that an Executive Secretary be provided for the 
Board of Christian Social Concerns. We also request, in the light of our urgent needs, 
diat the study be completed and the realignment take place by the time of die 1966 
Annual Conference and that all the major agencies of our church be included in die 
executive leadership of our Conference. 

Regional Conference 

We would like to call to your attention the Soudieastern Regional Conference 
on Christian Social Concerns at Lake Junaluska, July 5-8, 1965. An excellent program 
has been arranged with several outstanding speakers scheduled. 

The Conference on Christianity Confronts Communism held at High Point College, 
November 10, 1964, has been regarded a tremendous success with about 800 persons 
in attendance. The Board of Christian Social Concerns is happy to have worked in 
this program. 

ALCOHOL PROBLEMS AND GENERAL WELFARE 
Rev. Robert M. Hardee, Chairman 

The history of Methodism is a history of concern. Basic to the activities of John 
Wesley was a tenderness of conscience that was consolidated in his Aldersgate experi- 
ence. He and our church call us to die same tenderness of conscience that is indicated 
by our awareness of odiers' needs and our willingness to use our resources to meet 
diose needs. Such a call is re-issued to each generation and underlying it is the 
aspiration that (in the words of die 1964 General Conference) "All men should have 
maximum opportunity for security, health, happiness, and the abundant life to which 
Christ calls us." 

Perhaps no greater direat to individuals and society as a whole exists dian die 
alcoholic beverage industry. Such an industry and the use of its products are in direct 
opposition to the attainment of die above stated aspiration. Over five million victims 
of alcoholism "exist" today. Life consists of illusions created by the jinni of the bottle. 

Mediodists are called upon to re-affirm their position of total abstinence and "also 
to seek healing and justice for the neighbor who is victimized. Concern for die alcoholic 
and for those in trouble because of beverage alcohol is the clear mandate of die 
Christian faith." (1964 Gen. Conf.) 

The flow of alcoholic beverages in North Carolina is on the increase. As more 
liquor stores are opened, more drinking is evident. Affirmation of total abstinence should 
carry with it a willingness to fight the spread of alcoholic beverages. Recently, in 
addition to local option elections, liquor by the drink and a North Carolina distillery 
have become issues. District superintendents, ministers, Sunday school teachers, con- 
gregations, and the general public are called upon to voice disapproval of these issues. 
Every Methodist is encouraged to write local and state authorities expressing disapproval 
of the sale, distribution or use of alcoholic beverages. We believe it will be a backward 
step in North Carolina to manufacture liquor by the barrel, or sell it by the drink. 

Activities 

1. Commitment Day was observed again in a forceful way. Over 60,000 attractive 
brochures were distributed. A full page ad was presented in the North Carolina Christian 
Advocate. 

2. The Division co-sponsored the distribution of over 60,000 reprints of a pertinent 
editorial which had appeared in the North Carolina Christian Advocate. 

3. A representative of the Division was on the program of the State-wide Convo- 
cation of the Methodist Student Movement which was held at West Market Street 
Methodist Church in Greensboro. 

4. The Audio-Visual Library of films, filmstrips, and charts has been increased to 
thirty-five titles. Lists were distributed diroughout the Conference and also published 
in the North Carolina Christian Advocate. Also audio-visuals were available free of 
charge to churches of our Conference. 

5. World Temperance Sunday and Commitment Day were given special emphasis. 
Again, "Commitment to Abstinence Record Books" were made available to churches 



Western North Carolina Conference 177 

that did not intend to use commitment cards and wanted to begin a permanent record of 
total abstainers. 

6. Continued co-operation and financial support have been extended the Christian 
Action League of North Carolina in its program which closely parallels die four-point 
program of The Methodist Church. The Board of Christian Social Concerns is repre- 
sented on die Board of Trustees and Executive Committee of this league. Especial 
support has been given die league in its spearheading of the legal fight to prevent 
liquor by die drink or a North Carolina distillery. 

7. Courses on Christian Social Concerns were taught in several leadership schools 
in the Conference. Honorariums were made available to teachers in die field of Alcohol 
Problems and General Welfare. Workshops and Christian Social Concerns rallies have 
been held in die Conference. 

8. "Clinical Training in the Pastoral Care of Alcoholics" under the direction of 
Rev. E. F. Bradley, Chaplain of The Keeley Institute, Greensboro, was offered through 
scholarships. Financial support has been given die Chaplain who has served in this 
capacity for seven years. 

9. Financial assistance was extended to youths who attended a national conference 
related to alcohol problems. 

Recommendations 

1. It is recommended that Commitment Day be effectively promoted in each 
charge dirough sermons, literature, and opportunities to commit lives to die alcohol-free 
way of life. Also, tiiat Christmas for Christ emphasis begin on Commitment Day. 

2. It is recommended that the Mediodist program which includes Commitment, 
Education, Legislation, and Rehabilitation receive emphasis throughout the year in 
each local church. 

3. It is recommended that each district program include opportunity to lift up the 
alcohol problem. 

4. It is recommended that the Christian Action League of North Carolina continue 
to receive our co-operation and our financial support. 

5. It is recommended diat die Christian Action League of Nordi Carolina include 
representatives of this division and that privileges be reserved of adding additional 
names as it is deemed necessaiy. 

6. It is recommended that die Audio-Visual Library be maintained and expanded. 

7. It is recommended that we continue to stress die training of key ministers and 
laymen, including young people, for leadership in the area of Alcohol Problems and 
General Welfare, and that selected delegates be sent to various schools, area workshops 
and seminars. 

8. It is recommended that the program projected by the Division on Alcohol 
Problems and General Welfare of die General Board of Christian Social Concerns be 
included in the Conference program insofar as this can be done practicably. 

9. It is recommended that particular stress be given to rallying public opinion in 
local areas against "adult only" movies and pornographic literature. 

10. It is recommended that serious and careful study and consideration be given by 
local churches to the report of the Surgeon General on the effects of smoking and the 
use of tobacco and that especial emphasis be given to orientation of young people 
on the effects of cigarettes and the use of tobacco. 

11. It is recommended that the Division make a serious study of alcoholic rehabili- 
tation following medical care. 

12. It is recommended that local churches be alerted to dieir opportunity to 
recognize and witness against the many, various and subtle forms of gambling now 
offered to the general public. 

HUMAN RELATIONS AND ECONOMIC AFFAIRS 
Rev. J. A. Lindsey, Chairman 

The Human Relations Division of the Conference Board of Christian Social Concerns 
recognizes that some progress has been made in human rights; such as integration of 
the various Christian Workers Schools across our conference, World Day of Prayer 
programs, Sunrise Services, and other observances. We recognize the progress diat 
has been made and is being made in the area of public school integration, recreational 
facilities, and fair employment practices in certain industries of our state. 

We also recognize and acknowledge our need to repent for our lack of concern 
and involvement in the area of human rights. We ask for forgiveness and remind the 
people of God of their solemn obligation to provide informed and enlightened leader- 



178 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

ship in the solution of our racial and other human relations problems. We request 
Bishop Hunt and his cabinet to consider a suggested time for repentance and a new 
call to action on an occasion such as Race Relations Day. 

We recognize that differences of opinion exist regarding die right of persons to 
demonstrate in orderly fashion to awaken die public conscience. However, we affirm 
die position of our church regarding the validity of orderly demonstration and support 
the Council of Bishops in deploring die use of violence in the solution of any problem. 

We also affirm the conviction that every qualified citizen of die United States should 
have the right to vote and that requirements for determining voting qualifications be 
the same for all people. We urge the members of our churches to bring their influence 
to bear in eliminating voter discrimination. 

We would remind ourselves that die General Conference of 1964 approved volun- 
tary contributions from Methodists to the Racial Witness Relief Fund, designed to 
give economic assistance to persons who, in upholding die racial doctrines of The 
Methodist Church, suffer economic reprisals. Our ministers are encouraged to interpret 
and publicize the Fund in such a way that concerned Methodists may have opportunity 
to give through the Interboard Commission on die Local Church. 

We urge our ministers to cooperate in every way possible with those leaders and 
groups who are seeking to use Christian methods to achieve racial equality and an in- 
clusive society. 

We commend the spirit of the General and Jurisdictional Conference of 1964, 
pertaining to invitations for Central Jurisdictional Churches to be merged with other 
jurisdictional structures. We particularly desire that the Western North Carolina 
Conference move forward witli all good conscience to die extending of such invitation. 

We should be aware of the Charter of Racial Policies adopted by the General 
Conference of 1964 and stimulate study and discussion in the local church with the 
objective of adopting the statements of belief and commitment contained in the charter 
as their own. 

Persons and institutions which distort truth, and in other ways create unrest, 
confusion, and hatred, work against both the pioneering and healing role of the church. 
They should be resisted in every possible way in order that inevitable and desirable 
changes in society may be accomplished as quickly and as harmoniously as is possible. 
The church must not hesitate to discharge its legitimate role in diese unpleasant times. 
To do so is an invitation to decadence bodi widiin and widiout the church. 

Recognizing the tremendous good accomplished by the North Carolina Good 
Neighbor Council, in economic, social, and spiritual uplift, we urge Governor Dan 
K. Moore and our representatives to allocate sufficient funds and give every other 
necessary encouragement to the continuation of this body and its work for the well 
being of all people in North Carolina. 

In view of the widespread misunderstanding of the government's Anti-Poverty 
Program, we suggest to our local churches that an opportunity for interpretation and 
understanding be provided through discussion, use of published materials and use of 
well advised resource persons. Also, we particularly desire that die Annual Conference 
carefully correlate agency plans concerning its over-all involvement in die outreach 
of this program. 

We rejoice with the North Carolina Council of Churches, as die administrative 
agent, that substantial funds have been allocated by the Federal Government for an 
inclusive ministry to migrants. This is not to be interpreted as a signal for Methodists 
to discontinue their financial support of the migrant program but does signal additional 
opportunity for Methodist churches in the areas of migrant ministry to give every 
assistance to an increasingly effective ministry. 

PEACE AND WORLD ORDER 
Rev. H. C. Young, Jr. 

The Church of Jesus Christ has unique opportunities to be used as an instrument 
of peace in the modern world. Many of these opportunities were listed by the 1964 
General Conference in a special resolution found in paragraph 1823 of the 1964 
Discipline. The Division of Peace and World Order calls attention to these opportunities 
and seeks to fulfill the responsibilities which they imply. 

a. The church can be objective, since it represents no particular nation, social 
class, economic theory, or political party. 

b. The church can be a means of communication, since it includes people of many 
nations and groups. 



Western North Carolina Conference 179 

c. The church can be a means of reconciliation and unity, since it holds forth a 
supreme loyalty greater than the lesser causes for which men fight. 

d. The church has, in the proclamations of the prophets, the standards of social 
righteousness without which peace is not secure. 

e. The church has, in the witness of Christ, the key to achieving needed change 
without violence. 

f. The church can hear and share the Spirit of the Eternal, in which contemporary 
passions may be seen in true perspective. 

Let the church remember that the basis for our concern is in biblical dieology and 
Christian ediics, God's love in Christ has reconciled all men to himself and to each 
other. Through this reconciliation we acknowledge God as Father and all men as 
brothers. It is God's will that all men should live in intelligent good will with all others. 

We have as our heritage the words of the prophets that the nations "shall beat 
their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks," and that the nations 
shall not "learn war any more." 

We who are called to be followers of the Prince of Peace should make the redemp- 
tive love that was in Jesus a dynamic and moving force within our society. Unless we 
are able to relate the deepest ethical insights of our religion to the task of making 
peace at this moment in history, and unless we are able to deal creatively with the 
forces that lead to war, then we will have failed God our Creator and Christ our Lord. 

Therefore, let us open our lives to the influence of God's will, persistently explore 
the possibilities of moral force and spiritual power, and seek to become instruments 
for his peace-making purposes. Let us use ourselves and our resources of energy, 
influence, and treasure to establish die foundations of peace." 

(From paragraph 1823 of die 1964 Discipline) 

In this spirit we make the following recommendations for 1965-1966. 

1. That local church pastors be encouraged to lead their congregations in specific 
prayers for peace at frequent intervals during die year and diat many of diese prayers 
be concerned with particular areas of crisis or need. 

2. That the Division continue its sponsorship of annual youdi seminars to the 
United Nations and diat similar seminars in die field of peace and world order be 
contemplated for adult groups. Such seminars might study in Washington and/or 
New York. 

3. That Methodists who attended the World's Fair or who for other reasons go 
to New York this spring and summer be encouraged to attend a United Nations Seminar. 
Daily seminars will be open to anyone at a cost of $1.00 per day per person. Detailed 
information is available from the Methodist office at the United Nations, Room 1100, 
777 United Nations Plaza, New York, New York. 

4. That all Methodists make tiieir Senators and Representatives aware of their 
positions on matters pending before Congress. A helpful leaflet is "Registering Chris- 
tian Opinion," 10c from The Service Department, 100 Maryland Avenue, Washington 
2, D. C. 

5. That United Nations Week, World Order Sunday, and Trick or Treat for 
UNICEF be observed in all local churches. Many excellent films and filmstrips dealing 
with the United Nations are available free of charge from the film library of the 
Board of Christian Social Concerns. 

6. That further cooperation with other Methodist churches in North Carolina 
across conference lines be encouraged in all effective ways. 

7. That the Division be a co-sponsor of the 1965 World Affairs Institute at Blue 
Ridge, North Carolina, contribute to its financial support, and send two delegates. 

8. That widespread study of the report of the Commission to Study the Christian 
Faith and War in the Nuclear Age be encouraged. Copies may be obtained at $1.00 
from Cokesbury or The Service Department, 100 Maryland Avenue, N.E. Washington 
2, D. C. 

9. That Concern and other materials recommended by the General Board of 
Christian Social Concerns be more widely used by the local church commissions. 

10. That local church, district, and subdistrict groups be encouraged to invite 
speakers on missions and communist Russia. Two of our Conference members are 
available: Dr. Robert Tuttle, 311 Third Avenue, N.E. Hickory, N. C, and the Rev. 
Orion Hutchinson, Jr., Box 8, Walkertown, N. C. 

11. That local churches be encouraged to invite students of other lands to partici- 
pate in the life of the church and to be present for special programs and events. 



180 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

12. That the Division explore the possiblity of sending, during the quadrennium, 
one or more of its members on a Study Tour on World Peace sponsored by the General 
Board of Christian Social Concerns. 

13. That efforts be made to encourage ministers and laymen to attend national 
and international meetings of the church where sincere and vital efforts are made to 
understand world issues and where plans are made to resolve world problems. 

14. That local churches, districts and subdistricts be encouraged to plan World 
Understanding Workshops similar to die one held at Lexington diis past year. 

15. That die Nordi Carolina Council of Churches be commended for the work 
of its National and World Affairs Committee and that our Division continue to 
work in this field with the North Carolina Council of Churches. 

16. That ways be sought to activate local church committees on World Peace 
within the Commission on Christian Social Concerns and to alert our ministers and 
laymen to the great opportunities open to die church in diis field. 

17. That all levels, from the local church to the Conference Board, serious attention 
be given to die question, "Who Speaks for the Church in Social Action?" 

18. That diere be an emphasis across our conference on the joint study, "Mission: 
The Christian's Calling," sponsored by die Board and die Woman's Division of die 
Board of Missions. 

19. That at every level of the church serious action projects be undertaken to 
strengdien the United Nations and international institutions of good will. 

REPORT 

The tendi annual UN Seminar for youdi was held June 8-12, 1964, with 112 persons 
in attendance. The eleventh seminar is planned for June 14-18, 1965, with an estimated 
148 in attendance. The division was co-sponsor of the World Affairs Institute at Blue 
Ridge, North Carolina, in July 1964 and was represented by one of our members. 

The course, "The United States and the New Nations," has been widely taught 
across the conference with the Division providing leadership and materials where 
requested and where possible. 

The Division encouraged ministers to participate in a UN Seminar for the clergy 
sponsored by die North Carolina Council of Churches. 

The Division commends the WSCS of the Conference, die Thomasville District 
and the First Methodist Church in Lexington for the excellent World Understanding 
Workshop held February 24-25, 1965. 

The Division has sought to express its gratitude to individuals and corporations 
of die state and nation that have shown intelligent Christian interest in world issues. 

One member of the Division attended a national UN Seminar sponsored by the 
General Board in the fall of 1964, and the chairman of the Division attended a 
Seminar on World Population Control sponsored by the General Board in the spring 
of 1965. 

Several members of the division, lay and clerical, have spoken to various groups, 
have been leaders of workshops and have served as teachers in training schools across 
the conference, dealing with subjects related to peace and world order.

DEACONESS BOARD 

The primary objective of the Deaconess Board is to lift up the place of the 
deaconess in the total program of the Western North Carolina Conference and to 
clarify both to the ministers and to the laymen the work in which these women are 
engaged. The deaconesses serve in various institutions and areas of work and they 
endeavor to interest and recruit other persons for all professional relationships within 
the church. 

We do not feel that the primary function of the Deaconess Board is to engage in 
projects. Its function is in the areas of interpretation and promotion. Plans include 
developing brochures and other promotional materials. The eighteen active deacon- 
esses and their efforts magnify the work of the conference. 

In the over-all program of the church we have had a considerable amount of 
information regarding the restructuring of the Board of Missions of The Mediodist 
Church. This new plan is a matter of interest and concern both on the conference and 
local levels. I am sure that it is in order for the Deaconess Board to relate very 
briefly how the deaconess relationship fits into the over-all picture of the Board of 
Missions as it is now restructured. Whereas, the deaconesses prior to General Conference 
in 1964 were related officially to the Woman's Division, they are now under the 
Deaconess Commission of the Division of National Missions.

BOARD OF EDUCATION 

I. CHRISTIAN EDUCATION IN THE CHURCHES AND IN CONFERENCE 

PROGRAMS 

Carl H. King, Executive Secretary 

"College Bowl" and "Meet the Press" are two favorite television programs at our 
home. December 27, 1964, Dr. James B. Conant, former president of Harvard 
University, a highly respected authority on education in America, was interviewed. 
When asked if he thought the educational system in the United States was in bad 
shape, he quickly replied, "It is not in bad shape but nothing like as good shape as 



182 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

it needs to be to meet the challenge of the days in which we live." What Dr. Conant 
said about public education is just as true about Christian education in churches and 
churches colleges. 

The Methodist Church is not standing idly by in the face of this challenge. Our 
bold adventure with new and better curriculum materials is one answer. Christian 
Studies for Methodist Children has been commended generously as an example of 
significant progress in the Christian nurture of our children. Statements from two 
church bulletins, one a rural church and the other a large city church, tell the story. 
The teachers in the Children's Division of the Sunday School are simply 
thrilled with the new literature, so are the children. I think this is something 
wonderful for the children of Methodism. However, there are some Methodist 
churches that do not use our Methodist Literature. I happened to be in a 
Methodist church this summer that was using some cheap substitute. I could 
hardly realize that I was in a Methodist church. Children in Sunday Schools 
like that are being ungratefully cheated. This new literature is really opening 
a new door to Christian study for children of The Methodist Church. I would 
urge every Methodist church to give its children the opportunities this literature 
offers them. 

Earl A. Cook, Pastor, Friendship-Boger Chapel 

No other Protestant church in America prepares such varied and extensive 
helps for the teacher. Scholars in the field of Christian Education from all 
denominations rank the study program of The Methodist Church as one of the 
best in the world. Our literature is used in part or in its entirety by many other 
denominations. 

Particular mention should be made of the curriculum in the children's 
division which began with die month of September. This offers a program of 
work and study for pupils, parents and teachers. It represents an exciting new 
approach to the study of the Bible and of our Christian faith. 

As Methodists we do not believe that our church or our literaure is neces- 
sarily better than that of other Protestant denominations, but we are Methodists 
and proud of it. We feel that through the proper use of our church school 
literature we will not only understand our church better but will become more 
effective members of it. Our materials are designed to help us grow in the 
Christian faitii and become more useful members of The Methodist Church. 

J. Clay Madison, Pastor, Myers Park Church 

Dr. Henry Bullock, Executive Secretary, Editorial Division of our General Board, 
is one of the best in his profession. He was thrilled with the effective work of the 
writers of Christian Studies for Methodist Children. He has testimonies of approval, 
both oral and written, from throughout the church. Dr. Bullock, however, reminds 
us that "we have merely established a beachhead" for adequate Christian nurture in 
The Methodist Church. The next task is new and revised study materials for our young 
people and adults. This is no small undertaking. 

Christian Education of Children, l964-'65 

(Condensed from report by Louise Bobinson) 

Miss Louise Bobinson reminds us that approximately 62,000 children are members 
of the church schools of the W. N. C. Conference. They are involved in a variety of 
educational experiences. Our big objective for the past year was die interpretation 
and introduction of Christian Studies for Methodist Children. The thoroughness widi 
which this goal was achieved and die enthusiastic reception by parents, teachers, 
children, and ministers has forcefully revealed again the major problem in Christian 
education: i.e. more time needed for teaching-learning experiences. This challenge 
is constantly with us whether children, youth or adults are involved. Our success in 
Christian nurture during the years immediately ahead will be determined to a large 
extent by the way in which we as Christian educators meet the challenge stated by 
Dr. Conant when he said, "Our educational system ... is nothing like as good as 
it needs to be to meet the challenge of the days in which we live." An adequate 
response to this challenge in Christian educcation now is the combined responsibility 
of churches, public schools, church colleges, universities, campus ministries and 
related community educational enterprises, to mention a few of the channels open to 
us. 



Western North Carolina Conference 183 

Any success with children during the past year has been due largely to the 
involvement of people in the Conference Council of Children's Work; the Curriculum 
Workshop at Pfeiffer College attended by 600 persons; district and subdistrict meetings; 
Extension Service through Creative Activity Workshops by Miss Susan Carmichael, 
whose availability was made possible by Pfeiffer College; Laboratory Training School 
for Duke Divinity students sponsored by Dr. W. A. Kale at Duke Memorial Church, 
Durham; Missionary Education of Children; Day Camping for elementary boys and 
girls; preparing leaders for work with exceptional children; giving encouragement 
and guidance to those churches with Through-the-Week Nursery and Kindergarten 
schools; Christian Workers Schools that enrolled 11,280 persons; and increasing 
number of laboratory classes; district conference on Christian Education with classes 
on Vacation Church School methods and materials; and guidance for 755 schools 
which involved 49,816 children and teachers as reported in 1964.

were held in the Charlotte and Waynesville districts. Fifteen district and subdistrict 
meetings were held in April in the interest of more and better vacation schools in 
1965. For the first time vacation school study materials are an integral part of 
Christian Studies for Methodist Children and, in a very real sense, constitute a fifth 
quarter for teaching-learning experiences. 

The Church's Ministry to Youth and Young Adults, 1964-'65 

(Condensed from reports by Paul Duckwall and Tom Lee) 

The Exploration of a Youth Ministry by the Interboard Staff of our General Board 
of Education began in September 1962. As a result of this study, it seems reasonable 
to predict that some changes, in youth work as we have known it, will be initiated. 
For example, the Curriculum Committee is engaged in building a new youth curriculum 
for which supporting materials will be provided. This in itself is requiring rethinking 
of youth work in the church; but we anticipate also that some added emphases and 
new approaches will be needed; that some concepts must be revised, others strength- 
ened, and new ideas accepted; that methods and techniques will be altered; that in 
some cases a whole new thrust will be mandatory. No one knows either the shape or 
the extent of these new program elements now; but dre kind of world in which we 
live demands that we be adaptable to change, and that we study the latest statement 
of objectives for the church's ministry to youth. 

The objective of the church as manifested through its educational ministry is that 
all persons be aware of and grow in their understanding of God, especially of his 
redeeming love as revealed in Jesus Christ, and that they respond in faith and love — 
to the end that they may know who they are and what their human situation means, 
increasingly identify themselves as sons of God and members of the Christian com- 
munity, live in the spirit of God in every relationship, fulfill their common discipleship 
in the world, and abide in the Christian hope, p. 31, Manual for the Commission on 
Education. 

The above restatement of the purpose of the church is one which lias been 
approved by all Protestant churches that work with the National Council of Churches. 
It is also the stated objective of The Methodist Church as manifested through all of 
its boards and commissions. As such it becomes a challenge as the church moves 
forward in the ministry of its Lord. It calls for an increasing awareness of and growth 
in our understanding of God and a corresponding response in Christian discipleship 
on the part of all who will accept the challenge. 



1S4 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

Young Adults 

Our purpose in the Christian education of older youth and young adults is synony- 
mous with the objective of the church as stated above. This is reflected, in part at 
least, in the plans which we have for our 1965 Young Adult Christian Morals Assembly. 
Under the theme, "For Such A Time As This," we have our puipose: "To challenge 
young adults to demonstrate as individuals and as a Christian group the mind and 
spirit of Christ in all relationships with their fellow man." Dr. Russell T. Montfort 
is to be our assembly speaker. One hundred or more young adults will come to this 
assembly to consider what it really means to be a Christian, to be the church in times 
such as these. 

In the meantime our ongoing ministry to and with youth continues. We are 
constantly seeking new avenues of approach to and communication with growing 
and changing youth. Attendance at conference sponsored youth activities remains 
challenging to all who are privileged to work with youth and their adult leaders. 
Delegates in 1964 were: 

Camp Tekoa for Junior High Boys and Girls 956 

Senior High Officers' Workshop, Lake Junaluska 325 

Senior High Christian Citizenship Assembly, Junaluska 346 

United Nations Study Tour on Peace and World Order 88

The activities listed above represent hours, days, weeks, and even months of careful 
planning, promoting, recruiting and training of leadership, registering of delegates, 
and directing on the part of your employed staff members, and other adults who also 
serve gladly on a volunteer basis. The training of youth and their leaders in the local 
church, subdistrict and district remains the most challenging part of our youth 
ministry.

Cooperative Missionary Education 

In a cooperative effort, the Woman's Society of Christian Service, the Board of 
Missions, and the Board of Education have provided training for missions study 
courses in all age groups. A conference Missions Study Workshop prepared leaders 
to go back into the district and provide instruction for local church leaders. The junior 
high workers, as well as other age-group teachers, were coached this year for the 
National Missions Theme, "Spanish Americans." Further missionary education for the 
junior highs is provided through participation in giving to the Methodist Youth Fund 
and through the World Friendship emphasis at Camp Tekoa. 

Camp Tekoa: Program and Improvements 

Each summer Camp Tekoa provides a growing experience in the Christian faith 
for many junior high boys and girls. Last summer 956 junior highs were in attendance 
during eight six-day sessions and one ten-day session, for an average of 106 campers 
The ten-day session was for older junior highs and proved to be a very worthwhile 
experience. 



Western North Carolina Conference 185 

Since Camp closed last summer several improvements have been made on facilities. 
A new swimming pier was built to replace an old one; the drainage field for the septic 
tank was enlarged to meet present needs; and repairs were made on a drainage ditch 
and bank which were damaged by flooding rains last October. 

Ten Sessions and Counselor Training 

Plans for this coming summer provide for ten weeks, including a ten-day camp 
and nine six-day sessions. This will give an opportunity for 1,120 Junior high boys 
and girls to attend. 

There are also plans for a Counselor's Training Camp for the purpose of preparing 
leaders for more effective service in the conference. This leadership enterprise is 
scheduled at Tekoa, June 6-9, 1965, without cost to any camp counselors who will 
attend from any church in the conference. 

Conference Camp Committee 
J. E. Carroll, Chairman 

Camping: Christian Education Out-of-Doors affords excellent opportunities for 
confronting youth with God. Evangelism, relevant to the interests and needs of youth, 
is basic in plans for a five-day Appalachian trail hike and other similar activities with 
young people. This is also true of day camping with children and in family camping. 
The Conference Camping Committee has three major objectives: (1) to interpret 
camping as Christian education out-of-doors (2) to encourage districts to secure 
property and develop facilities closer home (3) and to provide leadership education for 
camp directors and counselors. 

Leadership Education 

Education is for better leadership as well as for the good life. We look to public 
schools, colleges and universities, to in-service training projects, and to our exercise 
of the ballot to keep people with creative minds and dedicated lives in places of 
responsibility in church and state. We are involved in and are concerned about all 
that takes place in the name of education. 

Our primary responsibility is to give guidance to dedicated volunteer people who 
carry large responsibilities in our churches. We deal with interpretation and use of 
lesson materials, understanding pupil needs, guiding growing life and motivation of 
people for study and further education in preparation for leadership in our churches. 
We give assistance to district directors, teachers in vacation schools, church school 
teachers, planning sessions for leaders in all summer activities, to mention only a 
few areas of leadership. It is in Christian Workers Schools, however, that we reach 
more people with ten hours of formal class study each year than in any other way. 
For three years in succession we have had the largest and we trust one of the better 
conference records of The Methodist Church. More than 10,000 people are taking 
advantage of these schools scheduled in each of the thirteen districts every year. 
There is an increasing number of laboratory classes which is the most effective type 
of leadership education we have yet devised. 

Enrollment in Christian Workers' Schools by districts in 1964-'65 was as follows:

Christian Evangelism 
Evangelism is the full work of the whole church. Each member and the program 
of every church agency should work and witness from this focal point. Evangelism is 
rightly a much used word and is also frequently an abused word. One comprehensive 



186 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

and reasonably satisfying definition is that: "Evangelism is confronting people with 
God" — God as revealed in the person of Jesus, the work of the Holy Spirit and in 
the Bible. This statement properly understood provides a starting place for parents, 
for the kindergarten teacher, counselors of youth, college professors, speakers for 
youth groups, Wesley Foundation directors, adult classes or for the pulpit message. 
"Evangelism: confronting people with God" is a role of Christian education in its 
ministry to all people from the youngest to the oldest. It is from the above mentioned 
focal point that members of our conference staff approach their work in evangelism 
with specific age groups. 

The membership class, received on Palm Sunday, Easter, or any other time, is the 
fruit of Christian nurture in the home, church and church school. It is evangelism as 
conceived for our children in The Methodist Church. It is Christian nurture at its 
best as presented in study materials and as shared with children by their parents, 
teachers and ministers. It is this conception of evangelism with children that continues 
to make die membership class the focal growing point of the church. 

Youth Evangelism: An amazingly large percent of our Methodist teenagers belong 
to the church. Both groups need Christian nurture relevant to their needs. An adequate 
ministry to those within and a program of outreach to those not identified with a 
church is youth evangelism. Young people cannot or most likely will not work out 
their own salvation. Our greatest need is to enlist enough dedicated and qualified adult 
counselors to work with youth. This is a task in Christian education. Until this 
challenge can be met and until we can motivate a more vigorous program of Christian 
education for our adult membership, the peak of Christian growth will continue to be 
at the point where youthful enthusiasm surrenders to the thinking of status quo 
groups and procedures. 

Adult Study Groups — A Potential for Christian Growth: We have a limited program 
of Christian education for young adults. They are thinking and are moving in the 
right direction. Two persons from our conference, Miss Fannie Bame and Miss Barnett 
Spratt, recently attended a workshop for the Home-Bound at D'uke University. A 
proposed new curriculum for all adult classes is being written now with September 
1967 as the target date for use in the local churches. These developments indicate a 
more effective use of adult study groups for Christian growth in The Methodist Church. 
Our conference program needs to be strengthened and enlarged in preparation for 
these anticipated changes.

boro College, $120,280; High Point College, $120,280; Pfeiffer College, $60,220; Duke 
Divinity School, $45,940. 

These contributions total $467,000. Upon request of die Board of Education and 
with approval of the World Service Commission 5% of the total annual payment to 
each of the four colleges will be added to the endowment fund. 

The College Sustaining Fund initiated about 1949 for the purpose of increasing 
salaries for teachers and for a better quality of education in our church colleges has 
grown steadily and has proved to be a basic source of financial support for higher 
education. Growth and total contributions for an eight-year period are as follows: 

1957-'58 $ 260,393.90 

1958-'59 291,765.04 

1959-'60 309,137.70 

1960-'61 312,498.98 

1961-'62 328,799.82 

1962-'63 383,363.47 

1963-'64 373,519.19 

1964-'65 467,000.00 

$2,726,478.10 

This amount of $467,000 will be $497,000 for 1965-'66 if the request for $30,000 
increase is granted. These funds are made available through regular channels of the 
church such as: Board of Education, World Service Commission, and the generosity of 
ministers and laymen in their local church budgets, 



Western North Carolina Conference 187 

2. For Campus Ministry (formerly called Wesley Foundation Program) our contri- 
bution is $60,000 and for Wesley Foundation Building Program $30,000 for 1964-'65. 

3. Race Relations Day, the second Sunday in February, is a church-wide observance. 
The goal for the offering is $1,000,000. The amount received for 1963-'64 was $499,265. 
Because of the location of Bennett College within the bounds of the W. N. C. 
Conference our contribution of $10,000 is returned to Bennett from the treasurer of 
the General Board of Education. 

4. Methodist Student Day, the second Sunday in June, is observed in behalf of 
higher education. Our conference contributes $7,000 for the National Methodist 
Scholarship and Student Loan Fund. 

5. Student Recognition Day is scheduled for the last Sunday in December in 
recognition of students who are in colleges and in secondary schools. 

Fred Russell, conference treasurer, writes checks for all above mentioned funds. 
His report in the Journal is the official record. An audit of local church budget will 
also be included. 

Christian education, whether in a church or church college, has a spiritual and 
intellectual contribution to make to the social order in which we live. A newspaper 
editor speaking in our conference several years ago made this significant statement, 
"The church college has the best long time hope for the world today." We will now 
turn to a report on the financial campaign being endorsed by that speaker. 

Campaign for Christian Higher Education 

Fletcher Nelson, Executive Director 

To supply background for those who have not been members of the Board of 
Education and to provide current data for all of us, let us take a composite look at 
the $3,000,000 Campaign. Had everything meshed according to schedule die Campaign 
would have been over by June 1964, or at the latest, January 1965. About a year ago, 
after studying data, the Cabinet of die Conference decided to extend the time and 
terminate the Campaign at the Annual Conference, June 1966.

The purpose of the above table is to reflect attrition to Church Pledges. Pledges 
from churches reached a peak in April 1959 — $3,029,160. We are using the June 1960 
figure, however, because at that time the Conference expanded from 11 to 13 districts. 

Losses in Advance Gift Pledges have been comparatively small — $21,617.00. That 
came about through deaths and some transfer of individual commitments to apply on 
church pledges.

The Committee on Christian Higher Education, of the Board of Education, met at 
the Methodist Building, Statesville, February 4, 1965. Following reports and transaction 
of business before the committee, Bishop Earl Hunt spoke to the group. He closed his 
talk with the following recommendation: 

"I request that the Committee on Higher Education here assembled to charge the 
Council of Presidents of our four conference colleges, together with the president of the 
Conference Board of Education, the chairman of this Commitee on Higher Education, 
and the executive secretary of the Conference Board of Education, to develop a plan 
whereby a closer relationship between our Annual Conference and its four colleges may 
be achieved, and a better coordination of efforts and programs among the four institutions 
accomplished; and I urge that this Committee under the suggested chairmanship of the 
president of the Board of Education be prepared to make a progress report to the Board 
of Education at its spring meeting this conference year." 

The recommendation was unanimously adopted by the Committee on Higher Edu- 
cation, February 4, and Board of Education, March 11, 1965. 

Where leadership education enterprises beyond the local church are scheduled on 
a subdistrict, district, conference or inter-conference basis, we request approval of the 
Conference Board of Education for joint planning and participation between members 
of our conference staff and persons holding similar positions in the Virginia-North Caro- 
lina Conference of the Central Jurisdiction. Our joint responsibilities will involve those 
churches within the bounds of the Western North Carolina Conference and will be sched- 
uled after consultation with the district superintendent and the pastor of the host church 
where the meeting will be held.

Western North Carolina Conference 195 

Report L 
BOARD OF EVANGELISM 

Report No. 1 

We rejoice in the evidence coming to us from throughout the districts that Evangel- 
ism is moving to the forefront of our people's concern. That which was once a 
program is becoming a passion, what was once an occasional emphasis is being 
recognized as the church's main business. We are glad that God seems to be stirring 
us with a discontent in these days which is causing us to question many things 
previously accepted. We are glad that our ministers are not satisfied to be institutional 
lackeys, when the need for redemption is so great. We are glad that the church is 
questioning itself instead of merely condemning the world. From this we take hope — 
God will not fail His church. We must not fail Him. 

We commend the district directors, district superintendents, and their committees 
for the vigorous leadership given this past year. From almost every district reports 
have come to us of dynamic programs designed to assist the local church to be evan- 
gelistically effective. Someone has said, "Every generalization is a lie, including this 
one," but we would state again our conviction that the church is in a very real way 
dependent on the spiritual power of its ministers, and counsel deep dependence on the 
Holy Spirit as we continue to seek and pray for Renewal. 

Report No. 2 
We commend to our Conference the Quadrennial Program of Evangelism out- 
lined by the S. E. Jurisdictional Committee. We believe it to be a good program 
and our Conference program will follow it, insofar as practicable, for the present 
quadrennium. We prayerfully lift up the following points and commend them to every 
district and local church for the coming year. 

A. Continuing Emphases 

1. The cultivation of church membership and die reactivation of the negligent 
through: 

(a) A program of friendly visitation of the entire membership on a continuing 
basis, using some form of the Shepherd plan. This will involve lay participation widi 
consequent growth, and will free the pastor for more directed visitation of the needy, 
distressed, bereaved, and unchurched. Let this visitation regularly and systematically 
include the negligent. "That they do not care is bad; diat they should think the church 
does not care is tragic." In the conservation and cultivation of the church's members 
nothing is more vital than a warm, evangelistic pulpit. The spirit of the worship 
service will largely reflect the pastor's heart, and for this we must depend heavily on 
the Holy Spirit. 

We recommend again the practice of dedication of home, according to die service 
in the Book of Worship, using the certificate available from Methodist Evangelistic 
Materials, 1908 Grand Avenue, Nashville. 

The use of conversation groups in die homes, "The Twelve," Bible study groups, 
retreats for officials, the encouragement of family worship and devotion, is recom- 
mended for nurturing the church's membership. We commend to each pastor the 
regular emphasis on the family altar, grace at meals, and other such devotional practices 
as will assist the family to find its strength in Christ. 

2. Church School Evangelism: We recommend that local church worker's conferences 
and training sessions be held emphasizing growing Christian commitment as the goal of 
Christian nurture. We suggest diat with careful guidance, using the materials prepared 
by the General Board of Evangelism, the Church School Membership Cultivation Super- 
intendent has a most important evangelistic responsibility. 

3. Biblical Studies: We sense a hunger for a knowledge of God's Word in the 
midst of man's words and recall that Protestantism's great revivals have been Biblically 
based. We commend District-wide Bible conferences for teachers, and local church 
Bible study groups, led by the pastor or qualified laymen. We particularly commend 
the recovery of the mid-week worship hour as an ideal time for Bible study, and 
recommend the study of the Bible text itself, rather than a study about the Bible. 
Our people need to recover a familiarity with the Bible, and we especially recommend 
such study for additional meetings of youth. 

4. Tested Techniques for Each Local Church: A membership class for children 
(and for others when possible) in every local church taught by the pastor for a 



196 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

minimum of six sessions. These may be conducted throughout the year as decisions are 
being made. 

An active and trained Commission in each local church, organized in accordance 
with paragraphs 220-222 of the Discipline to give Evangelistic leadership in the local 
church. 

The planning und^r guidance of the pastor for an annual revival in each local 
church, accompanied by special prayer and visitation. 

We recommend that paragraph 127 of the Discipline be followed faithfully in 
the correcting of church rolls and the handling of inactive members. 

B. 1965-1966— A Year of District Evangelism 

In accordance with the suggestions of the S. E. Jurisdictional Committee, we 
prayerfully offer the following suggestions to our district superintendents, district 
directors, and district committees for this conference year. 

1. A training program for members of Commissions jointly or by separate com- 
missions, on a district or subdistrict basis, early in die conference year. 

2. The local church self appraisal study, using the questionnaire on page 9ff. of the 
Quadrennial Program Leaflet. Let this study be largely led by laymen. We believe its 
results will justify its use. In this connection we particularly recommend to each local 
church not having already done so, die use of the quadrennial self study book, "One 
Witness in One One World," accompanied by the study of die Epistle to the Ephesians. 
Guidance may be found in the S. E. Jurisdictional Program of Evangelism. 

3. District or subdistrict studies establishing primary areas of parish responsibility, 
not that any church might be shut out, but that no unchurched areas might be left out. 

4. District-wide Bible Conferences, particularly for teachers, led by competent 
Bible instructors. 

5. Subdistrict Youth Revivals or Christian Witness Missions for youth. 

6. District "Lay Witness Missions," exploring and sharing together the recovery 
of the lay witness as a vital tool in Methodist history and practice. 

7. District-wide simultaneous revivals, accompanied by visitation programs and 
such district emphases and helps as will encourage and strengdien the witness of each 
local church. 

8. District consultations on unconventional evangelism, planning evangelistic 
witness in such ways as district needs and opportunities may indicate. 

9. We commend die formation of voluntary groups of ministers for spiritual study 
and sharing on subdistrict basis, and recommend this to such as may be led to seek it. 

10. We recommend that the district superintendent, district director, and district 
committee consider themselves the vital team in evangelistic responsibility beyond the 
local church, and that everything possible be done to promote an effective district 
program. 

11. We suggest the following goals, prayerfully: 

(a) We recommend diat each church in our Conference set a minimum goal 
of winning at least one on profession of faith during the year. 

(b) The goal of 8,000 accessions to church membership for the Annual Confer- 
ence on profession of faith, this goal to be broken down by districts on a percentage 
of conference membership basis, and furdier divided to each local church on the 
same basis so that each local church has a reasonable goal. 

That to the criteria usually used for die evaluation of an effective ministry, each 
pastor in our conference personally add in as prayerfully a manner as possible die 
serious questions, "How many persons have I led to trust Jesus Christ as Savior this 
year? Am I too limited in my concept of evangelism, being willing to depend com- 
pletely on the worship service? May I discover for myself the joy of personal witness- 
ing?" 

Report No. 3 

Within the last four years, under two different Boards of Evangelism, the request 
has been made for a full-time director or executive of Evangelism. The need, in our 
judgment, grows greater with each week and mondi! Evangelism is needed — but so 
are fresh approaches — and diis calls for study, and active efforts within the total thrust 
of die church's witness. Therefore, again we call for and most earnestly request the 
Annual Conference to provide an executive of the Board of Evangelism. 

Nonetheless, we are willing to be treated alike and to fit in with the total efforts 
of the Annual Conference. If there is to be a re-structuring of die Annual Conference's 
paid leadership, and this we believe is needed, we want Evangelism to be represented 



Western North Carolina Conference 197 

in that re-structure. We, therefore, request that this study be made and that the 
realignment take place by the time of the 1966 Annual Conference; and further, that 
all the major agencies of the Conference be included in this executive leadership.

Report M 
BOARD OF HOSPITALS AND HOMES 

Report No. 1 

This year has been a fruitful, full, and favorable year as far as your Board of Hos- 
pitals and Homes is concerned. With nearly half of the Board being new members, time 
was given early in the year to acquaint these members with our work. We are confident 
at this point that these persons have become acquainted and adjusted and that our Board 
will move forward during this quadrennium with dispatch and careful direction. 

Two committees early went to work on matters pertaining to hospital chaplaincy 
and mental health. Great strides have been made in both areas. The Charlotte District, 
having a committee of its own on hospital chaplaincy and having a real need to serve 
Methodist patients from out of town and out of state, asked for aid in acquiring a full- 
time Methodist chaplain for that city. In view of the fact that the large number of people 
coming into Charlotte could not be served by ministers serving churches there, and in 
view of the fact that the district was willing to assume the major share of financing such 
work, our Board has recommended to the World Service and Finance Commission that 
the sum of $2,500 be allocated for this project. Rules, regulations, and standards are now 
being worked out so that a first-rate program can be instituted. By next Annual Con- 
ference it is our hope to have such procedures and standards ready to give to all our 
districts. This is a new field of service as far as our Conference is concerned. We feel it 
will be worth our money and efforts. Your Board feels that all such projects under Meth- 
odist sponsorship should have the guidance and oversight of the Conference Board as 
described in The Discipline. We hereby express appreciation to the Charlotte District 
for its cooperation and understanding in this matter. 

The area of mental health has captured attention of our nation over the last several 
years. The church must share in this concern. Two matters have claimed the attention 
of our Board and our committee, namely, a counsel for ministers and Methodist people 
and the mentally retarded children. An inter-board committee has been formed to in- 
vestigate the needs and advisability of the first of these. The chairman and M. T. Lam- 
beth represent us on this committee. We pledge our support to any program that this 
inter-board committee sees wise and that will help those mentally or emotionally dis- 
turbed. We are working with the Southeastern Jurisdiction on matters related to the 
mentally retarded child, and it is our hope that a pilot project in this area might be lo- 
cated within the bounds of our Conference. 

Let us urge our Methodist people to visit and become better acquainted with and 
informed about our Methodist institutions and programs in the area of Hospitals and 
Homes work. Each church should have a Hospitals and Homes steward (Par. 143:14 
and Par. 278:3, The Discipline). Each of these stewards should have "A manual for the 
Hospitals and Homes steward" which can be ordered from the Board of Hospitals and 
Homes of The Methodist Church, 1200 Davis Street, Evanston, Illinois. No church can 
do what it should be doing without such a steward and without this person being in- 
formed. 

We recommend that W. Q. Grigg be reappointed as Golden Cross Director; that the 
election of M. T. Lambeth as superintendent and treasurer of the Children's Home be 
confirmed; that the election of Willard S. Farrow as administrator of the Methodist 
Home be confirmed and that the election of Manuel G. Holthouser be confirmed as 
administrator of the Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital.

J. B. Golden, Secretary 



]9S Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

Report No. 2 
GOLDEN CROSS 

Calls for Golden Cross help are still on the increase. During the past year $3,600.00 
was paid to Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital to assist in patient care. Dnke University 
Hosital received $4,(1)0.00. Of this amount $2,500.00 was used as a part of the salary of 
the chaplain; $1,000.00 was used for the Graduate Chaplain Training Program; and 
$500.00 was used for the summer clinic in-service training for pastors. The amount of 
$22,334.04 was used for patient care throughout the Conference. One hundred forty- 
three patients received an average of $156.15. 

The need for Golden Cross funds continues to increase as the cost of hospitalization 
and medical care increases. Therefore, it is important that pastors and laymen see to it 
that the amount apportioned for Golden Cross is accepted and paid. 

PROCEDURES AND RULES COVERING USE OF GOLDEN CROSS FUNDS 
Authority for approval of Golden Cross service shall be vested in the hands of the 

conference director, on recommendation of the district director. The district directors 

shall be appointed by the bishop and cabinet. 

1. Approvals for Golden Cross aid shall be based upon evidence of extreme financial 
need. Golden Cross assistance will be provided after exhausting other sources such as: 

a. Hospital Insurance 

b. Federal and state government programs 

c. Personal resources 

When circumstances warrant an exception to rules, the conference director of Golden 
Cross and the chairman of the Board of Hospitals and Homes shall constitute a special 
Board to make a decision in the matter. 

2. Appropriate forms to aid the local pastor and the district director have been de- 
signed by the Board and should be used when processing Golden Cross cases. The local 
pastor should complete the form entitled "Application for Golden Cross Aid" and send 
it to the district director. If he approves the request, the district director will sign the 
application and send it to the conference director. Application forms may be obtained 
from the district director or the conference director. 

3. Golden Cross payments will be made directly to the hospital or drug store except 
in special cases where the individual has borrowed money to make payment or other 
special consideration is warranted. 

4. When time permits, arrangement to secure Golden Cross aid should be made 
before patient enters hospital. 

5. Golden Cross aid is considered a donation, but if at any time the recipient wants 
to repay Golden Cross, he should be encouraged to do so. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

1. We recommend that the promotion of Golden Cross be shared by the conference 
director, the district directors, and the Hospitals and Homes stewards in the local 
churches. 

2. We recommend that November 7 be set as Golden Cross Sunday in the Confer- 
ence. 

3. We recommend that $3,600.00 be given to Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital 
during the year 1965-66 to assist in patient care. Methodists who qualify should have 
prior claim. This amount is to be in monthly installments. It is to be administered by the 
hospital and a report submitted to the Conference through the Golden Cross director. 

4. We recommend that $4,200.00 be paid to Duke University Hospital during the 
year 1965-66 for the following purposes: 

a. Salary of Chaplain $2,500.00 

b. Graduate School Chaplain Training Program 1,200.00 

c. Summer Clinic — in-service training for pastors 500.00 

( This is a scholarship fund to assist members of the Conference to attend the clinic. ) 

5. a. For his time and effort, we recommend that the conference director receive 
$800.00 for the conference year 1965-66. 

1). In addition, $2,000.00 should be made available for printing, telephone, post- 
age, office supplies, clerical assistance, etc. 

c. For travel in interest of Golden Cross, we recommend that the director receive 
8(j; per mile to the amount of $6^0.00. 

6. We recommend that the remaining Golden Cross funds be distributed equitably 



Western North Carolina Conference 199 

to Methodists of the conference, laity and clergy alike, on the basis of need and irregard- 
less of hospital facilities used and the location of said facilities. 

W. Q. Grigg, Conference Director 

Report No. 3 
THE METHODIST HOME AND WESLEY NURSING CENTER 

Additional, extended and more efficient service to more people was the accomplish- 
ment most noteworthy in the 1964-1965 conference year at 3420 and 3700 Shamrock 
Drive in Charlotte. 

By the Christmas holidays, 1964, every room on the third floor of the Main Building 
of The Methodist Home, which had undergone extensive renovation, was occupied. The 
number of resident members reached 260 with almost 200 living on the resident area 
campus with the balance being served as patients in Wesley Nursing Center. More per- 
sons from throughout the conference came into the Home in this 12-month period than 
had in any two combined previous years! The Western North Carolina Conference is 
truly more adequately meeting the needs of its aging constituents! 

The cost of remodelling and renovating the third floor (formerly the infirmary), in 
the amount of $147,000,000, was met entirely by a special gifts and designated funds 
during the year without seeming any long-term loan. No indebtedness whatsoever now 
exists for this major project. Also other gifts, including one cottage and three apartment 
donations totaling $42,230.11, plus gifts to cover improvements in Fellowship Hall, 
were received. 

The Home's annual audit prepared by the George C. Scott Company, Certified Public 
Accountants, shows the total operating expense of the Home for the 1964-1965 fiscal 
year to be $518,273.28. Income for the same period was $530,581.90. Toward the total 
supplementary financial support required, $123,397.84 came from the churches of the 
Conference through their apportionment to the Home's treasurer. 

While The Methodist Home was expanding its facilities to serve more members, 
Wesley Nursing Center's census of patients was increasing day by day. This newest serv- 
ice agency of the Conference, costing $3,100,000.00, containing 250 beds, systematically 
opened its six patient floors, and in late February reached capacity. With its almost 200 
employees, it is the largest church-owned and operated nursing home rendering long- 
term or chronically ill care in the South, and the largest now in operation anywhere 
under Methodist auspices. Sixty-three thousand four hundred fourteen days of care was 
given during this period. 

The operating expense of Wesley for the 1964-1965 fiscal year was $597,750.01. This 
indicated a $9,426 per patient per day cost. Because of the increase in census, this is a 
reduction of $4,494 over the per diem cost of $13.92 reported on page 205 of the 1964 
Conference Journal. By operating at full desired capacity, it is anticipated that the new 
year's figure will reflect an even slightly less per day cost. $30,849.46 of Conference ap- 
portionment funds, specifically earmarked for confidential charity at Wesley in serving 
Methodist patients from our Conference, was received by the Home's treasurer. 

At the end of the fiscal year February 28, 1965, the balance to pay completely for 
Wesley was down to $256,000.00 with hopes high to reduce such even more before An- 
nual Conference. 

Conference confirmation is asked for the election of Mr. Willard S. Farrow as adminis- 
trator of The Methodist Home and Wesley Nursing Center; the appointment of the Rev- 
erend Theodore S. Hoffmann as chaplain of The Methodist Home and Wesley Nursing 
Center; and the appointment of the Reverend Mrs. G. G. Adams as associate chaplain; 
Conference confirmation is also asked for the following persons to serve as members of 
the Board of Managers of The Methodist Home and Wesley Nursing Center:

Report No. 4 
THE CHILDREN'S HOME 

During the last year we have served 338 children at The Children's Home. Seventeen 
additional children were served through Mother's Aid, and 17 were given aid in the 
college program. The number of new applications received this year was 86; 58 children 
were accepted for care; 17 of the children were accepted for support through our Moth- 
er's Aid program. A total of 103,117 days of care was provided. 

I bring you a paragraph from the director of our Social Service Department, Mr. 
Jackson S. Hoyle, to our Board of Trustees at its November meeting: 

"Of the fifty-eight children admitted during 1963-64, four per cent were orphans, 
six per cent had one parent living, and ninety per cent had both parents living. Why do 
these boys and girls need care in the Children's Home if their own parents are living? 
A look at the families of the fifty-eight children accepted last year will help answer this 
question. Both parents of two children were dead and relatives were unable to care for 
them. For three children, one parent was dead and the surviving parent was not able to 
care for the children. The parents of seventeen children were separated, the fathers had 
abandoned all responsibility for the family, the mothers were unable to support and 
adequately care for the children. The mothers of sixteen children were mentally ill and 
the fathers would not, or could not, provide for the children. Six children had mentally 
ill fathers and their mothers had problems preventing them from keeping their children 
with them. Two children had been abandoned by their mother, five abandoned by both 
parents, and five children removed from parents by the court because of neglect. 

"These varied and, in many instances, deep-rooted family problems resulting in the 
need for care of today's child away from his own home are somewhat more pronounced 
than was true when loss of parents through death or lack of financial resources were 
the major reasons for children coming to the Home. Today's child has lived through some 
disturbing and, in some instances, damaging experiences in his own family. This fact, 
coupled with his feelings about separation from his own people and his desire to be with 
them, presents a child with needs that challenge the skills, interest, love, and dedication 
of every member of the staff. We have seen that in most instances he is a child with par- 
ents and many of his concerns are related to his continuing relationship with those 
parents. This has brought to the Home the challenge and opportunity to extend its help 
to parents and other relatives in an effort to be of service to the whole family. The goal 
of this kind of service is to enable the family, where possible, to overcome the factors 
that brought the child to the Home in the first place so that the family can be reunited 
again. Where this can be achieved it will mean a shorter stay in the Home for some 
children than was true in the earlier years. Many boys and girls who cannot return to 
their own people will continue to need care for longer periods of time. 

"The problems faced by the individual in today's society seem to grow increasingly 
complex. The church faces a greater challenge than ever before to speak to the problems 
of mankind and to be the source of strength man needs to master himself and his en- 
vironment. The Children's Home is a vital expression of the concern and compassion of 
the church and it is good to be a small part of this great endeavor." 

I am certain, too, that you would be interested in the following excerpts from the 
report of our director of guidance, Miss Frankie Craven, in regard to plans for the six- 
teen graduates last year: 

"Seven of the boys were accepted for admission to regular college programs, but one 
of those decided to continue in a job which he had had during the summer rather than 
to enter college. Three of the boys are freshmen at Lees-McRae, one at Davidson, one at 
Lenoir-Rhyne ( as a day student, living with relatives in Hickory ) , and one at East Caro- 
lina. One who had hoped to be admitted to college was not accepted for a full-time pro- 
gram, but is enrolled in an evening class at High Point College, while working at Mc- 
Lean Trucking Company. The remaining one of the boys had hoped to get a job in a 
photographic studio but had to take time out for surgery at the close of the school year 
and has remained at The Children's Home while recuperating. At present he has just 
begun to work with a sales organization called National Student Agency. 



202 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

"The three girls who sought college admission were accepted — two at Pfeiffer and 
one at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. A fourth one took a short course 
at Draughon's Business School and is employed by Piedmont Airlines. Another is an 
operator for Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company in the Charlotte offices. 
Still another is employed by Ruzicka Bookbinding Company in Greensboro and is attend- 
ing evening classes at the Downtown Division of Guilford College. The seventh member 
of the group is employed by the Salem Company ( clothing manufacturers ) . 

"A considerable amount of the counselor's time goes, too, to follow-up of graduates 
still in college or other training facilities and, as far as possible, of those getting started 
in jobs. It was gratifying this year to see three of our young ladies and one of our young 
men complete successfully four years of college training, and three of the young ladies 
finish one-year college courses in commercial subjects. The three young women graduates 
are teaching in the public schools this year, and all three are married. The young man, 
completed the one-year programs are employed in stenographic jobs — two in Greensboro 
who received a degree in business administration, went into the Air Force. The girls who 
and one in Durham. Two of these are married, also." 

Our senior class this year again numbers 16. Six of the boys hope to be admitted to 
college; three plan to take some technical training; and two expect to take jobs immedi- 
ately after high school graduation. One of the girls is applying for college admission; one 
hopes to train in X-ray technology; one will take some business courses; one will enter 
a school of beauty culture; and the other expects to take employment without further 
training. 

We are happy to report to you that at this time three important buildings are being 
constructed on our campus. Two of our cottages — the Smith Cottage and Cornelius Cot- 
tage — were about to become obsolete; they had very definite features that caused great 
concern in regard to the possibilities of fire. We were fortunate in having accumulated 
in our building funds, through bequests, sufficient funds to replace the two. We expect to 
get in these cottages sometime during the summer. These are being built to house little 
girls from ages seven to eleven. The third building is a church school building. It will 
adequately house our entire church school program and include a large fellowship hall 
with dining room facilities. This building will help us meet many needs in our church 
school program and will provide an excellent meeting place for large or small groups. 
This has been a great need for us for some time. This building is made possible by be- 
quests from the estate of Mr. John W. Alspaugh. 

I would again like to pay tribute to the men and women serving in a devoted and 
efficient manner in the important positions of our staff. Those of us who have the privi- 
lege of administering these programs recognize that the successes achieved are the results 
of the labors of these dedicated servants of the church. I am sure that one of the greatest 
encouragements to those who administer our program is the impression that we get in 
talking with people of our conference when they refer to the Children's Home as "our 
Children's Home." This is as we would have it. You in your local church have in the 
Children's Home an arm of service to your local church and to the church at large. We 
shall always be mindful of this fact. 

Despite the fact that we had a rather unusual year weather-wise, our productive 
enterprises had a very good year. We produced all the milk consumed; a large percent- 
age of the vegetables; all of the meat that was consumed, and a larger portion of the feed 
for our cattle. Our per capita cost for the year was $4.19 per day which represented an 
11 cents per day reduction from the previous year and to be compared with a cost of 
$5.46 per child per day for the other denominational institutions in our state. Our request 
for next year is the same as that for the past year. Our final report, which follows, is our 
budget figures for the period October 1, 1964, through September 30, 1965:

Report N 
BOARD OF LAY ACTIVITIES 

During the conference year our District Boards of Lay Activities have been very 
active. District Lay Rallies and District Workshops have been well attended; as in one 
district over 450 laymen attended workshops. The district lay leaders are to be 
commended for dieir fine work in promoting our work on the district level as well as 
die conference level. The attendance at our Seventh Laymen's Advance Conference, 
Lake Junaluska, was very encouraging with an increase of more than 100 laymen 
over the prior year. In January we had over 1,500 laymen to attend the Laymen's 
Evangelistic Rally in Charlotte. Dr. D. W. Brooks brought an inspiring message. 

Our work in lay speaking, stewardship and Methodist Men continues to progress. 
Marcus Deal is promoting our 4th National Conference of Methodist Men at Purdue 
University, July 9-1 lth, and we are expecting 130 men from our conference to attend. 
Plans are complete for an Area Training Session on "Cultivating Christian Stewardship 
with Children and Youth" to be held in Statesville, October 5, 1965. District teams 
will then hold district and subdistrict workshops following the Statesville session. 

As authorized by last Annual Conference the Board of Lay Activities elected the 
following to the Committee on Wills, Bequests and Gifts: Robert P. Caldwell, Ralph 
M. Stockton, Jr., Dr. Roy M. Smith, Judge J. B. Craven, Judge L. Roy Hughes, Harry 
G. Bell, W. Bryon Moore and Charles J. Henderson. 

With the endorsement of the Bishop and Cabinet we recommend the following 
system of rotation for members of the Board of Lay Activities: 

1. That members of the Conference Board of Lay Activities be elected annually 
upon proper nomination as they are now but, with more consideration given to 
nominee's activities, cooperation, effectiveness and his attendance at meetings. 

2. That a member may be re-elected to the same position for six consecutive years. 



204 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

After that he must take a one year leave or be elected to another position on the 
Conference Board of Lay Activities, to which he may be re-elected for another six 
consecutive years. After serving for 12 years in two or more positions tire member 
(except under unusual circumstances as determined by the Executive Committee of the 
Conference Board of Lay Activities) must take a one year's leave before he can be 
elected to any position on tire Board. 

3. The rotation system recommended here is to be retroactive to June 1, 1962. 
Any member who will complete six consecutive years in his present position in May 
1968 must take a one year leave or be elected to anodier position on the Board. 

Our goals for the next conference year: 

1. Continue to stress the importance of an active District Board of Lay Activities. 

2. Promote greater attendance at our Eighth Laymen's Advance Conference at Lake 
Junaluska next August 20-22nd. 

3. Continue to urge District Boards of Lay Activities to secure copies of deeds of 
property owned by The Methodist Church and place in the hands of the district 
superintendent. (Epecially property that is not in active use.) 

4. Promote a program "Cultivating Christian Stewardship with Children and Youth" 
as sponsored by the General Board of Lay Activities. Area workshop set for October 
5, 1965, Statesville. 

5. Organize 25 new Methodist Men Clubs and work for greater activity in existing 
clubs. 

6. Have Spiritual Bailies in each district during the coining conference year. These 
meetings to be led by our own Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr. 

7. Promote sale of "History of the Methodist Church in Western North Carolina 
Conference" when this is completed by the Conference Historical Society.

Report O 
BOARD OF MINISTERIAL TRAINING AND QUALIFICATIONS 

Report No. 1 

In order to conduct interviews with candidates in an unhurried way and to meet 
its other responsibilities with care, the Board of Ministerial Training decided to have 
its major meeting in early May. Thus, the Cabinet can receive the Board's preliminary 
report by mid-May. We request tire cooperation of everyone concerned. 

I. PSYCHOLOGICAL GUIDANCE AND TESTING 

The pressures of present-day life impose unprecedented emotional stress on every- 
one. It is important that the minister be a person of emotional stability, not only for 
the wise handling of his normal responsibilities which have become increasingly 
complex and burdensome, but also because he is called on to help many individuals 
and families having psychological problems. It is believed that a program of testing 
and guidance for persons applying for admission into the W. N. C. Conference would 
enable the Conference more intelligently to judge who are best equipped to serve 
as full-time ministers and what types and patterns of guidance should be provided 
for all ministers during their period of probation. 

Acting on the authority of Paragraph 322.4 of the 1964 Discipline, which states 
that the "conference may require psychological tests to provide additional information 
on the candidate's fitness for die ministry," the Board of Ministerial Training and 
Qualifications of the W. N. C. Conference recommends that a program of testing and 
guidance be instituted by the Conference beginning with the year 1965-66, such a 
program to be under the administration of the Board of Ministerial Training, provided 
the details of the proposed plan, including the enlistment of acceptable and competent 
professional aid, can be completed, in consultation with the Cabinet, in time for process- 
ing candidates for admission on trial in 1966. 

A. Purposes 

The purposes of the program will be: 

(1) to provide the means by which an applicant for conference membership can 
be directed into a thorough review of his motivations for entering the Christian 



Western North Carolina Conference 205 

ministry and the formulation of an image of himself in the role of a minister. 

(2) to assist the Board of Ministerial Training in deciding upon tire candidate's 
fitness for conference membership. It will not be the intention of the psychological 
test to determine the validity of any candidate's call to preach but rather it would 
be one factor along with the record of educational equipment, religious training and 
experience, physical examination, and odier means of attesting the individual's readiness 
for a career as Methodist minister. 

(3) to provide the basis for a plan of guidance for candidates and probationers. 
It is believed diat the emphasis should be on guidance radier than screening and 
elimination. However, the screening benefits, while largely incidental, could prevent 
embarrassment to the candidate and the church through early detection of unacceptable 
patterns of response to stress. The guidance plan would be primarily diagnostic and 
interpretative. 

B. Tests 

Tests will be given to all candidates for admission on trial. They will be of two 
types — group tests and individual interviews. The group tests could be administered 
by a small committee of the Board members or even an individual using a manual, 
and the scoring done by a committee. Examples of such tests are the Minnesota 
Multiphasic Personality Inventory and the Edwards Personal Preference Inventory. 
In the case of the latter, interpretations of the score should be made by a professional 
rather than a committee of the Board. The individual interviews must be with a 
professional psychiatrist or psychologist using approximately one hour for each candi- 
date. 

Bodi die group tests and the individual interviews will be analyzed by a professional 
psychiatrist or psychologist with recommendations for the consideration by the Board. 
If the results of the tests and interviews indicate special need, additional sessions 
widi a professional consultant could be arranged. Each candidate would have the 
same initial test and interview. Information about who would be required to have 
additional sessions would be kept confidential. The records of all tests and analyses 
would be kept in confidence by the Board. 

C. Professional Aid 

The Board of Ministerial Training will name a carefully chosen and competent 
psychiatrist or psychologist, preferably one living and practicing in North Carolina, 
who will serve as the chief consultant of the Board as the plan is consummated and 
the program of testing started. Other professional personnel will be used to conduct 
interviews and evaluate tests. All professional consultants will necessarily be Christian 
persons sympathetic with the aims of die Christian ministry. 

Periodically one or more of the participating professionals will attend meetings of 
the Board to give information about the tests and to counsel the Board members regard- 
ing their use. 

D. Financing the Program 

The Commission on World Service and Finance of the Conference is requested 
to appropriate $2500 to finance the first year of this program. In later years the 
amount needed will likely be greater. It is presently estimated that the cost of the 
individual interviews will be approximately $25 each. It is recommended that one 
psychologist or psychiatrist living within the state be named as the chief consultant 
and advisor to the Board as this program is initiated. Other competent men will be 
used to conduct interviews and analyze tests. 

If this plan is approved by the Conference, die assumption is that adaptations 
will be made in subsequent years based upon the experience of the Boards in con- 
ducting and evaluating the tests. 

II. THE CALL TO THE MINISTRY 

Facing the acute shortage of well-trained ministers, the Board has undertaken 
two projects. One is the publication of a booklet, Steps Into the Methodist Ministry, 
copies of which have been mailed to each pastor. Additional copies are available free 
from our Registrar, Rev. John A. Lowder. 

The second project is a series of district meetings on the Call to the Ministry. 
Since other vocations are constantly presenting their claims to our youth, the church 
has a responsibility to acquaint carefully selected young people with the opportunities 
for service offered by the Christian ministry. Bishop Hunt has agreed to be present 
and speak at the ten district meetings. Each pastor is requested to bring several of 



206 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

his finest high school juniors and seniors and their parents to the meeting for his district. 
The schedule: 

October 13, 7:30 p.m. — High Point District 

October 14, 7:30 p.m. — Thomasville 

October 17 (Sunday), 3:00 p.m. — Salisbury District 

October 19, 7:30 p.m. — Gastonia and Marion 

October 20, 7:30 p.m.— Charlotte 

October 21, 7:30 p.m. — Statesville and North Wilkesboro 

October 24 (Sunday), 3:30 p.m. — Asheville and Waynesville Districts 

October 26, 7:30 p.m. — Greensboro 

October 25, 7:30 p.m. — Albemarle 

October 27, 7:30 p.m. — Winston-Salem 

III. POLICY CONCERNING CANDIDATES WHO PLAN TO SERVE 
OTHER THAN IN TILE PARISH MINISTRY 

1. It is expected that most of those seeking admission will plan to serve in die 
parish ministry of our conference. 

2. No question will be raised concerning the plans of those who expect to serve 
Methodist institutions or agencies within the bounds of our conference; one of the 
General Boards of our church; one of the universities of our church; in the military 
chaplaincy; as a missionary under our Board of Missions; or, in general, the larger 
Methodist connection. 

3. One who plans to serve an institution, board, or agency related to another 
Mediodist annual conference will be expected to present valid and convincing reasons 
why he should join our conference rather than the one in which he will serve. 

4. One who plans to serve a non-Methodist agency within the bounds of our 
conference, and especially one who plans to serve such an agency outside the bounds 
of our conference, should be asked the most serious and searching questions as to why 
he wishes to join our conference. The burden of proof will be on die candidate. The 
Board will need to be thoroughly and completely convinced of the propriety of 
admitting such a candidate before it renders a favorable vote. 

IV. RETREAT FOR CANDIDATES FOR ADMISSION ON TRIAL 

Our Board is planning a Spiritual Retreat with the candidates for Admission on 
Trial just before Conference meets. The purpose of this Retreat is to explore in depth 
the meaning of the Christian ministry. Several members of our Board will meet with 
the candidates from Tuesday noon, June 8, until Wednesday morning after breakfast. 
Bishop Hunt has agreed to speak. If this Retreat for those seeking Admission on Trial 
proves helpful, the Board may plan similar retreats for other groups. 

V. APPROVED SUPPLY PASTORS' SCHOOLS 

The 1964 Discipline (Pars. 317.2 (b) and 331) requires diose taking the Course of 
Study to pursue it in approved schools radier than by correspondence, except in cases 
of emergency. Two excellent schools are in our area: Duke and Emory. Scholarship aid 
is available through our Board for those attending Course of Study schools. We 
request permission to transfer $1,200, if needed, from the Ministerial Education Fund 
to the Approved Pastors' School Fund for scholarship aid. 

VI. ONE PER CENT PLAN 

We request continuation of the One Per Cent Education plan, the proceeds to 
be divided as follows: One-half ($30,000) to provide scholarships dirough service 
loans to the ministerial students of our annual conference; nne-half ($30,000) to be 
distributed to the Candler School of Theology and the Duke Divinity School by tb/j 
formula given in the 1964 report of our Board. 

VII. MINISTERIAL STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND 

Since die Scholarship Fund program began in 1960, a total of 139 ministerial 
students have been assisted in their education as of March 25, 1965, and a total of 
$96,317.00 has been lent. A number of the loans have been repaid by years of service- 
in our conference. We request the re-election to the Scholarship Loan Committee of 
Mr. Robert M. Smith, term to expire in 1969, and we commend him for the splendid 
service he has rendered as secretary-treasurer. We recommend that the policies for 
controlling die Scholarship Fund contained in the 1964 report of our Board be 
continued.

Report P 
BOARD OF MISSIONS 

ONE WITNESS IN ONE WORLD — THE URGENCY OF 
THE CHRISTIAN MISSION 

"Christ calls us to diis mission. Mission was the center of His life and ministry, 
and through the ages He has called His followers to share in this purpose of love. 
The ministry of Christ to men cannot be fulfilled without our participation in it. He 
offers to all, people of different races and conditions of life, a saving knowledge of 
Himself and a share in die blessings He brought to mankind. His followers are the 
channels dirough which these blessings reach the world today. The fulfillment of 
His dreams and purposes require our help. God's outreach through the mission of the 
church, offering a new life of faith and hope and love to all men, is not an optional 
byproduct of our Christianity. Mission is the very essence of the Christian life and 
thought. We dare not say, 'No' to its call." (Eugene L. Smith) 

Our world is one of turbulent upheaval, strife, conflict and revolution, such as 
described by Dr. Belvin Blake on Africa, "Since 1957 die continent of Africa has 
undergone one convulsive upheaval after another. The upheaval has been principally 
political, and whatever the result of rapid change — something new will emerge. 

"Some have described the events of Africa as a part of the world's revolution of 
rising expectations. The present generation is tasting the bitter results of the life of 
the refugee as the struggle for freedom continues in this newly formed nation's 
attempt to find stability and peace." 

In this setting die mission of die Church of Christ continues. The amazing thing 
is diat unprecedented opportunities of ministry, of healing, of bringing Christ's redeem- 
ing love to His people are increasingly possible in such a world. In the Congo in 
spite of withdral of missionaries on several occasions recently and the present fact 
that our missionaries have had to be wididrawn from the Central Congo, the church 
continues not only with most of its full active program under national leadership, but 
also it has been strengthened in evangelism, stewardship and leadership. The church 
in Africa has elected for die first time two African bishops. The leadership of the church 
has passed more fully into the hands of the nationals. Our missionaries withdrawn from 
the Central Congo have been assigned and are serving in Southern Congo. They 
continue to give important leadership and guidance to the church there. Greatly 
accelerated help is needed. 

In Cuba services continue in practically all of our churches. Many ministers left, 



Western North Carolina Conference 209 

or had to leave, yet laymen have stepped into the empty pulpits and filled in. Really 
heroic and sacrificial giving to the church has become a reality. Many churches have 
increased their giving up to 400% to pay salaries of their ministers, much of which had 
come from outside mission support. Under handicaps and hardships, the church 
continues amazingly vigorous. 

In Algeria die missionaries are helping to heal die wounds of eight years of civil 
war and strife, and they stand in high regard of the Arab people. In Indonesia, the 
work of the church is expanding and growing. In Malaysia, the vigor of die church's 
mission is finding new dimensions and power as it tries to answer questions of freedom 
and autonomy. In Latin America, Protestantism for the first time begins to join hands 
with the Roman Cadiolic Church in confronting the opportunities of revolution. 

Across the world the church faces the challenge of furnishing Christian literature 
for hundreds of millions in the fact of the voluminous communist and secular literature. 
The literature and literacy program of The Methodist Church continues to expand, 
but with tragically limited financial support. The church needs a million dollars a year 
for this. 

In the quadrennial emphasis over $12 million has been set as a goal for church 
extension overseas to buy church lots, to build churches, and at the same time to 
involve the local mission conferences and congregations in helping to finance these 
churches. 

In such a world the progress of the church is amazing. The greatest limitation is 
that of lack of total involvement of our Methodist Church to its total world mission 
through its prayers, knowledge, giving of its funds and young people as missionaries. 
We now need 500 more missionaries around the world, but lacked the funds to maintain 
the 1,500 we had in the field and had to cut this number by 20. 

RECOMMENDED ADVANCE MISSION SPECIALS 

The Copacabana Beach Methodist Church in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is the most 
important opportunity which Dr. J. Clay Madison saw on his visit to South America 
for the dedication of the Bariloche Church and a visit to our mission work in Brazil, 
Chile, and Argentina. This is a new congregation with no church. It is one of the only 
three Protestant churches in all of a very large suburban, middle-class community. 
Methodism has reached primarily the lower income group in Brazil in our mission 
work, therefore, this church is greatly needed in order to reach the Brazil of the 
future, for Brazil is rapidly becoming a middle-class population as their economic 
and social revolution continues. 

Every local church is urged to be a part of this project and assume a mission 
special for it. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for this in one year. 

We recommend the continued support of the work of all of our missions in the 
world and national missions; Hinton Rural Life Center, MCOR specials. We especially 
recommend the $15,000 radio station in the work of Charles Stokes, Korea, and the 
Africa Education Fund. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION AND CULTIVATION 

The crucial need of Mediodism, and this means each of us in our churches, is a 
vital sense of mission to all the world for Christ. The world is so desperately in need. 
This means becoming personally involved in Christ's missions and corporately involved 
as congregations in this mission. In order to bring this about, it will be necessary to 
have far more programs, world fellowship dinners, world banquets, missionary 
conference weekends, etc. These need to be planned in churches and groups of 
churches as well as subdistrict and district meetings. One of the greatest needs is to 
get our church schools involved in study, understanding, and participation in missions. 

The local church is the source of our missionary personnel and the support of their 
work. Thus, through the Commission on Missions in the local church, the mobilization 
of the local church for missions must be brought about. 

THE DISTRICT MISSION RALLY 

The District Mission Rally continues to be the basic program for mobilizing the 
leadership of the local church for missions. Here the world and all its needs, die 
mission of Christ, the call of our church, General Board of Missions, the conference 
Board of Missions, the district leadership bring to the local church the challenge for 
leadership, die opportunities, privileges and information for the year's work in the 
local church. This focuses sharply the local church's program in missions for the year. 



210 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

To make more vital the missionary story in a turbulent revolution and torn world 
far more opportunities need to be found and utilized for the telling of the mission 
story: local, subdistrict and district meetings of ministers, laymen, MYF, vocations 
conferences, Methodist Men, and other opportunities for smaller groups. 

THE COMMISSION ON MISSIONS IN THE LOCAL CHURCH 

The Commission on Missions is the central planning group for missions in the local 
church. It has the responsibility of reaching every member of the church and involvim; 
them in this mission. They must be a major source of information and give guidance 
to the whole program of missions. It is critically important the Commission be fully 
organized, meet regularly, and operate a full year-round program, informing and 
involving the membership in the mission of Christ. 

One Witness In One World — The Commission on Missions in cooperation with 
odier commissions will help involve the local congregation in the quadrennial emphasis, 
ONE WITNESS IN ONE WORLD'. This is very closely related to the work of the 
Commission. 

1. Self-Study — In the mission of the church and the degree to which the local 
church has found and is fulfilling its mission. 

2. N-l — Recruiting able lay people to help other churches in the neighborhood 
in an inner city, an outpost Sunday school, a new congregation, a mission church, 
or odier such opportunity for a year of service. 

3. The ecumenical church and our relationship with other denominations will 
be a major involvement in ONE WITNESS IN ONE WORLD. 

4. The world-wide mission of the church including church extension overseas and 
at home. 

Church-Wide School of Missions — "Claimed by God for Mission" by Dr. Eugene L. 
Stockwell, (subtitle, "The Congregation Seeks New Forms"). This is a study of the 
missionary organization of the local church and an excellent sequel to the study, 
Our Mission Today. Every church should involve itself critically and creative in this 
significant mission study. 

Sacrificial Giving — Involvement means giving of ourselves and our resources. The 
Commission needs to lead the congregation to give sacrifieially for mission specials 
through the Four Lanes of Service, for World Service, for Methodist Builders, for 
special offerings: the Fellowship of Suffering and Service, One Great Hour of Sharing, 
and special mission offerings at Easter and Christmas. 

Leadership Training Opportunities should be participated in at every opportunity 
by the Commission chairmen and members: District and subdistrict workshops and 
rallies; the Jurisdictional Missionary Workshop for commission chairmen at Lake 
Junaluska, July 23, 24, 25, 1965 (Cost about $25.00). Local churches need to send 
their chairmen to this. 

World Outlook — All members of the Commission should get this excellent magazine 
which is a basic source of information for their leadership. The Commission should 
plan a subscription campaign to get this in the homes of Commission members, the 
official board, and church school teachers. The Methodist Story should also be sub- 
scribed to for all members of the Commission. 

Manual For the Commission on Mission in the Local Church (40c) should be in the 
hands of each member of the Commission. The filmstrip: Your Church: Missions, ($5.00) 
should be in every church for die use of the Commission. (Order both from the 
Service Center, 7820 Reading Road, Cincinnati, Ohio). 

Recruitment of Missionaries — Our greatest contribution to this world mission is 
the recruitment of our finest young people to go as missionaries. In turbulent, disturbed 
days such as these, nothing less than our best can be adequate. Our Board of Missions 
needs about 150 missionaries every year to replace those retiring, going on leave, and 
short term missionaries. We need about 100 US-2's and Overseas-3's each year to 
meet the minimum needs. Every church should confront its very finest young people 
with this opportunity. 

URBAN CHURCH COMMITTEE REPORT 

The explosive population growth of our cities is receiving increasing consideration 
and study by our civic and government leaders. Our governor has appointed a 
special committee of Two Thousand on the Piedmont Crescent from Raleigh, N. C. 
to Greenville, S. C, and its rapid growth. The major portion of this Piedmont Crescent 
is in our conference. This growth symbolizes the rapid population increase along with 



Western North Carolina Conference 211 

industrial growth and development, mobility of population not only from the rural 
and declining population areas, but also within the cities. Changes within the city 
population patterns involve transition areas in economic and social groups as residential 
areas grow older and become blighted. It also brings changing racial patterns in 
neighborhoods. Areas around the inner city increasingly become social sore spots of 
crime, and above all, die social climate infested with the social diseases that cripple 
the human personality and inner being of the people for life. It is being found that in 
the early years of diree, four, five and six lives are blighted almost irreparably in 
such neighborhoods. 

It is, therefore, urgent tirat our conference launch a vigorous program of ministry 
to our cities. This needs to be a unified ministry of all of our churches in the cities 
and die resources of the whole church. Dr. Philip Edwards, director of the Urban 
Church Department of die National Division, recently visited Greensboro, Winston- 
Salem, and Charlotte to discuss our urban church problems and opportunities. He 
helped evaluate our urban situation. Ministers in these cities pointed out that our 
Methodist churches in the city very often minister to little "pockets" of their neighbor- 
hoods and church communities and never face togedier a united ministry or strategy 
to reach die whole city. This, he said, is an imperative in our day. 

In view of these rapidly growing needs of the urban areas of our conference, we 
recommend: 

I. That attendance be promoted of selected leadership for the Urban Convocation, 
February 15-17, 1966, in Chicago. That die leadership to attend this meeting be 
chosen by die Urban Committee and the Executive Committee of the Board of 
Missions. 

II. That a conference-wide Convocation on Urban and Town and Country Church 
be held February 1-2, 1966, in the Western North Carolina Conference in cooperation 
widi the Commission on Town and Country Work and the Conference Appalachian 
Committee. 

(A) That the Ford Foundation Studies of the Piedmont Crescent by the University 
of North Carolina and the Appalachian Area by Dr. W. D. Weatherford, be the basis 
of this and leaders of these studies be participants in the convocation. 

(1) Growth in our cities and adjacent areas. 

(a) Population — residential areas — inner city, urban and suburban growth. 

(b) Industrial and economic growth. 

(c) Church Extension. 

(d) Transition areas. 

(2) N-l program recruiting lay volunteers to assist in these needv area programs. 

(3) Rural North Carolina. 

(a) Growth areas near cities and in open country. 

(b) Static areas on fringe of growth. 

(c) Declining population areas. 

(d) Appalachian Mountain areas. 

(B) That participation in the conference Convocation be chosen by the Urban 
Church Committee; the executive committee of the conference Board of Missions 
along with the Town and Country Commission and the conference Appalachian 
Committee. 

(C) In die whole area of the urban church and town and country church, we 
recommend full consideration of various miinistries necessaiy: Group and area min- 
istries; community centers; Goodwill Industries; clothing centers; poverty programs 
of the government, etc.; relocation of congregations; continuing ministries in changing 
residential areas; church extension; uniting congregations in declining population areas. 

(D) That a continuing church extension survey be a part of the over-all study 
considering the need for new congregations, relocation of congregations, continuing 
ministries, united congregations, etc. 

(E) That there be several preliminary area conferences with several districts 
participating in preparation for the conference Convocation, Feb. 1-2, 1966. That 
planning for this be done in cooperation with the Town and Country Commission and 
the Appalachian Area Committee of the conference. 

(F) That the Convocation, Feb. 1-2, 1966, also be preparatory for the Urban 
Church Convocation, Feb. 15-17, 1966, in Chicago. 

THE WORK OF THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARY OF THE BOARD OF MISSIONS 

This has been one of our very best and fullest years in the work of the Board of 
Missions beginning with the thrilling program of die Board at Annual Conference widi 



212 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

the dramatic and colorful parade of our missionaries and flags of their countries and 
continuing through the year. There is a growing responsiveness and participation in 
the whole world mission of Christ. In spite of the increase in World Service churches 
continue to report increased giving in support of mission specials. In the conference 
year ending May 31, 1964, our conference gave to World Missions, $314,959 — a 9% 
increase; to National Missions, $45,180; M.COR— $38,108; for a total of $398,239 for 
mission specials — an 8% increase. 

OUR RECORD 

Our conference continues its place among the leaders of Methodism, and most 
important is in the area of missionary personnel. We continue to have more missionaries 
in the field dran any other conference in Methodism according to General Board reports. 
In 1963-64 Nordi Carolina recruited and sent more short term missionaries than any 
other state, and most of these were from the Western North Carolina Conference. This 
year we had one full-time missionary approved by the Board of Missions, Miss Elizabeth 
Callis, formerly an Overseas-3 in Burma. She will go to Southeast Asia after a year's train- 
ing. Miss Legare Rankin, Miss loyce Sweat and Miss Edna Swaim have been approved as 
US-2's; Henry Smith, of Leaksville, was one of die 16 chosen young men to go to 
the Congo for a special task force. Mrs. Louise Farr, Groce Methodist Church, Ashe- 
ville, is now serving as a full-time missionary librarian at the Isbella Thoburn College, 
Lucknow, India. 

In the last annual report available, 1963-64, our conference continued its significant 
record in support of missions. We were: fourth of all conferences in World Mission 
Specials; fourth of all Conferences for die 1960-64 quadrennium in World Specials; 
first of all conferences in One Great Hour of Sharing; fifth of all conferences in per 
capita giving to World Missions with an increase of 7c to $1.64; second of all confer- 
ences in MYFund (congratulations to die Board of Education Youdi Department); 
seventh of all conferences in World Service; first in giving to Alaska Methodist 
University for die year and also for the 1960-64 quadrennium. (The Statesville District 
was fourth of all districts in Methodism for die quadrennium); fifth of all conferences 
in giving to Alaska Earthquake appeal; and two of our WNC churches were in the top 
15 churches of Mediodism in giving to World Mission Specials: Centenary, Winston- 
Salem, and Myers Park, Charlotte. 

OUR DISTRICT TEAM 

We truly have an outstanding district team for missions in the district missionary 
secretaries and district superintendents. The high level of achievement of our conference 
grows out of the constant efforts of diese leaders. We have worked closely with the 
district missionary secretaries helping them in all ways we could in planning the year's 
work in their district. This has included planning togedier at the Jurisdictional Mission- 
ary Conference at Lake Junaluska which they all attended; an overnight planning 
conference in September to outline die year's work; a briefing conference by die staff 
of the Board of Missions in New York and a visit to die East Harlem Protestant Parish 
and the United Nations building. In addition, many suggestions have gone to die 
district missionary secretaries through the year in addition to helping them plan 
schedules for missionary speakers in their districts. 

MISSION SPEAKERS 

This has been die outstanding year by far in the promotion of the use of missionary 
speakers and scheduling them in the local church, district and subdistrict meetings. 
About six years ago, we had twenty-five missionaries approved or sent to the mission 
field for die first time in an 18-month period. A large number of these were on 
furlough this year. We have been able to work closely with them, planning schedules 
of some and promoting the use of odiers: Rev. and Mrs. William Bigham, Brazil; Dr. 
and Mrs. Charles Stokes, Korea; Rev. and Mrs. Ed Hackney, India; Rev. and Mrs. Jack 
Smith, Hawaii; Rev. and Mrs. Ernest Eppley, Bolivia; Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Vuncannon, 
Costa Rica; Rev. and Mrs. Joe Petree, Costa Rica; Rev. and Mrs. William Andrews, 
Brazil; Rev. Burr Baughman, Sarawak, Borneo; Dr. and Mrs. Charles Clay, Brazil; Mr. 
Seavy Carroll, Southern Rhodesia (now Rhodesia); Mr. Elmer Hall, Malaysia; Rev. and 
Mrs. David Swain, Japan; Mrs. Ralph Ward, Hong Kong; and Rev. and Mrs. Lonnie 
Tumipseed, Hong Kong. In addition to diese, a large number of missionary speakers 
were listed on materials for die church-wide school of missions, and thus more 
speakers were used in these schools than ever before. Odier lists of missionary 
speakers have been circulated widely and the mssionaries used. 



Western North Carolina Conference 213 

THE CHURCH-WIDE SCHOOL OF MISSIONS 

The second most significant achievement of the year probably has been that of the 
church-wide school of missions. Increasingly this school is becoming an outstanding 
event in the life of the local church. Special programs, dinners, speakers, and audio- 
visuals bring to it an air of festivity as well as involvement in the world mission. 
The mission speakers and audio-visuals have contributed greatly to make this one of 
our outstanding years. 

The workshop for training teachers of children, youth and adults is making a 
significant contribution to this. This is helping the pastor involve laymen in this 
outstanding work in the local church. This is increasingly a necessity if the church 
is to come alive in missions. 

The church-wide school of missions has been promoted in the district mission 
rallies; district workshops for teachers; district workshops for commission chairmen; 
mailings to pastors and commission chairmen and other types of promotion. 

AUDIO-VISUALS 

Our audio-visual library consisting of 13 district libraries and the conference library 
is one of die most vital forces in the program of the church-wde school of missions 
and in promotion of missions. This is said to be the best missions audio-visual library 
in Methodism. This year we scheduled 900 titles for one of our very best years. 

OTHER RESPONSIRILITIES 

The president of our Board, Dr. J. Clay Madison, was invited to the dedication of 
the Bariloche Church, Argentina, which our conference built. We were able to plan 
this trip with visits to our mission work in a number of areas in Brazil, Argentina, and 
Chile. This itinerary with reservations and schedules were worked out with the 
missionaries in the field. 

The Jurisdictional Missionary Conference at Lake Junaluska continues to be the 
outstanding event and opportunity in our conference each year. We have promoted 
attendance at the Commission on Missions Chairmen Workshop, Ministers' Workshop, 
Youth and Missions Conference in addition to our District Missionary Secretaries. We 
served as coordinator of the Workshop for the Commission on Missions Chairmen, and 
led the Workshop for Conference Missionary Secretaries and Board Chairmen for two 
of three sessions. 

The work of the executive secretary has involved also the planning of the work of 
the Board of Missions, carrying out the program of the board, planning reports, meet- 
ings, etc., in addition to tiiese many areas of promotion and cultivation for mission 
support and study. 

We have continued to handle the administrative details of the Minimum Salary 
Fund, the Cherokee Church Mission Specials, and the funds of the Board of Missions. 

Our work has involved mailings to commission chairmen and pastors periodically 
throughout the year on the various emphases and programs of missions. It has involved 
almost unbelievable correspondence •with local churches relative to missionary speakers, 
missionaries and their work, mission specials, mission programs, materials, audio-visuals, 
etc. We have tried also to keep in touch with our missionaries corresponding witii 
them from time to time relative to their work and how we might help them. The 
support of this conference of its missionaries is a fact of which the missionaries around 
the world have become aware. Over and over missionaries say that the Western North 
Carolina Conference is the conference that does such an excellent job in supporting 
its missionaries. 

Serving as president of the Hinton Life Center, Inc., we have had the privilege 
this year of bringing this facility and program to the attention of Dr. Ed Carodiers, 
Associate General Secretary of die National Division, and his staff, and the possibilities 
of this Center as one of the primary facilities for leadership training for the Appalachian 
program of The Methodist Church. Mrs. Porter Brown, General Secretary of the 
Board of Missions, visited the Center this spring on her way through Appalachia, and 
she was greatly impressed with it in her overnight visit there. 

PUERTO RICO AND COSTA RICA BUILDING TEAMS 

This year three building teams have been in the mission field helping build churches. 
In February, a team of 28 builders, laymen primarily, but ministers also, went to 
Puerto Rico to build the Hato Viejo Church. The church and educational unit were 
completed. This made a wonderful impact on the church and community there, but 



214 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

far more on the team who went and on those to whom they reported this trip when 
they returned. 

We worked with Dr. N. M. Harrison, who organized diis team, and when he was 
unable to go, he appointed Rev. Harold Sehram as team leader until he arrived. This 
is the third year a team has gone during February to build a church in Puerto Rico or 
Costa Rita. Plans are under way to send another team during the coming year. We rec- 
ommend this work to the local church as a mission special. 

Last summer two youth groups went to Costa Rica to build churches. One was 
sponsored by Wesley Memorial Church, High Point, and the other by First Church, 
Hickory. A vital experience of the mission of the church came into die lives of these 
young peoples as they participated in this project. 

Growing out of this contact with our church in Costa Rica, Carl Bean, Jr., a 
graduate oi Nordi Carolina State College with a Masters degree this year, went to 
the Methodist School in San Jose, Costa Rica, to teach and set up a science department. 
We helped get funds for this. 

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE AND FIELD SERVICE 

Fourteen local church financial crusades will have been completed by the end of 
the present conference year under the direction of the Rev. Rollin P. Gibbs, director 
of the Department. At the time of the writing of this report four crusades are incom- 
plete, but the estimated total raised for the year will be approximately $850, 000. 00. 
The Board of Missions will receive a total in fees of approximately $12,650.00 for these 
crusades. 

Building fund crusades continue to constitute the major part of the work, though 
some of the crusades include local church budgets. For the previous year and for 
die present year most of the crusades have been in medium-sized or small churches, 
and consequently the total raised is some less than the most of the earlier years since 
the program was launched eight years ago. In the schedule for the new year, however, 
is already one program to be directed in a larger church. 

Churches that anticipate a need for this service are encouraged to contact the 
Director as early as possible. A meeting with the local church officials enables the 
Director to explain the program, thus giving a basis for deciding on an adequate 
program to finance proposed building, budgets, or debts. 

CHURCH EXTENSION 

The 1964 General Conference urged that church extension continue to be one of the 
major emphases for the quadrennium 1964-68. The goal for new Methodist churches 
has been set at 400 per year. The district mission societies of the conference, under 
the leadership of the Reverend A. Glenn Lackey, Director of Church Extension, have 
been buying new church sites in residential areas before the land is subdivided in 
order to get the land at a reasonable price. The following goals were set by the 
General Conference for Church Extension: 

1. Every church conducting a self-study in a changing world to proclaim die 
gospel of Christ 

2. To assist local churches in building programs 

3. To establish 400 new churches each year and purchase new church sites for 
future programs 

4. To provide a total loan fund of $50,000,000 

5. To provide leadership and financial resources to extend Methodism in special 
home mission areas. 

In addition to the above, the Western North Carolina Conference should continue 
striving to reach our church people. 

1. Looking to the future, we need to establish missions or mission churches 
among underprivileged people, especially in urban areas needing a special ministry. 

2. In addition, out post churches and church schools should be set up in some 
sparsely settled areas where people are without access to a church. 

2. In addition, outpost churches and church schools should be set up in some 
need to be organized. These are situations where the established church cannot reach 
some people because of sociological or cultural differences. 

4. Increasingly there are situations in the Western North Carolina Conference 
where summer church projects should be launched in recreation and vacation areas 
where many people go for the summer. We already have a number of choice lots 



Western North Carolina Conference 



215 



which could be used for such projects. This is a challenge which should call for 
concern and imagination. 

5. With the rapid growth of cities and towns in our conference the inner city 
church is one of the major problems facing the leadership of our Annual Conference.

THE WOMAN'S SOCIETY OF CHRISTIAN SERVICE 

Mrs. Leslie E. Bamhardt, able and dedicated conference president, reports: 
Amidst changes in the re-structuring of the Board of Missions, the changes in 
terminology, in duties and the channeling of materials and reports, the members of 
the Woman's Societies and Wesleyan Service Guilds have adjusted admirably. We 
are now (almost) persuaded that "this growing together in a single missionary thrust, 
especially overseas, can become the church at its best." Other changes have given 
the Woman's Society representation on other important Boards and Commissions. We 
are grateful for this new opportunity to serve the church. 

Specific goals for the 25th Anniversary observance and for the quadrennium 
(1964-68) were set, based on the Purpose of the Society and Guild and include: (1) 
Growth in understanding and spiritual power through deepened Christian experience 
and new kinds of program: (2) Increase in knowledge of needs — overseas, at home 



216 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

and in human, international, interfaith and ecumenical relations; (3) Sharing in the 
outreach and witness of the church by increasing membership, financial giving, and 
missionary personnel. 

Of special interest and importance is the opening, staffing, and equipping of a 
Day Nursery and Kindergarten at the Cherokee Mission. This was established primarily 
to help the newly employed Indian mothers. Care is provided for children of 18 
months to six years of age. Nineteen children are enrolled at present. Much of the 
furnishings and equipment was acquired through Supply Giving. 

Full financial support is given for 14 missionaries, 12 regular and two special term, 
seven church and community workers, three deaconesses and one US-2. Financial 
support was increased for the Student Summer Training Program. We will continue 
for one year financial assistance for children and youdi work for the conference program 
The Society gave support for two important seminars held in the conference: (1) 
Christianity Confronts Communism, and (2) A World Understanding Workshop. Six 
new scholarships and eight renewals have been approved at Pfeiffer College and one 
at Scarritt College. All scholarship recipients are preparing for church-related work. 

Last year Methodist women were "Summoned to a New Age" in the program of 
study and now in the days ahead it is necessary that responsible women learn more 
about "Living in Such an Age." This we propose to do! 

NOMINATIONS 

The Board of Missions respectfully requests that Bishop Hunt reappoint the 
Reverend Horace B. McSwain, Conference Missionary Secretary; the Beverend Bollin 
P. Gibbs, director of Finance and Field Service; and the Beverend John H. Carper, direc- 
tor of Church Extension. 

ENABLING ACT 

The Executive Committee of the Board of Missions is authorized to make such 
appropriations as, in keeping with established policies, are necessary for the work 
of the Board of Missions "ad interim." 

T. CLAY MADISON, President 
T. CHABLES BEICHABD, Secretary 
HOBACE B. McSWAIN, Executive Sec. 
Adopted: Afternoon Session, June 11, 1965. 

Report Q 
BOARD OF PENSIONS 

Report No. 1 

The Board of Pensions recommends that the rate for retired ministers be set at 
$64 per service year and that widows of preachers receive an amount equal to 75% of 
the rate paid to men, or $48 per service year. 

For approved supplies, we recommend that the rate of pay be $50 per service year, 
and that widows of approved supply ministers receive an amount equal to 75% of die 
rate paid men, or $37.50. 

The Board has designated the following banks as depositories: Concord National 
Bank, Concord, North Carolina; City Savings Bank, Charlotte, North Carolina; Wachovia 
Bank and Trust Company, Charlotte, North Carolina. 

The Board requests permission to omit reading of the allotments to the Conference 
and that they be approved as printed in the Conference Journal. 

Report No. 2 

Again, we call attention to the requirement as indicated in paragraph 1634 of the 
1964 Discipline that the pastor's salary and the conference claimant fund be paid on 
the same proportionate ratio. The charge treasurer and the pastor are made responsible 
for seeing to it that this paragraph is complied with. If the conference claimant fund 
is not paid in the proper ratio, the pastor will be held responsible for any deficit, and 
on his retirement this deficit will be deducted from his pension, subject to paragraph 
1634, 1964 Discipline. 

Report No. 3 

At die 1963 session of the Annual Conference, a special committee was appointed 
composed of representatives of the Commission on World Service and' Finance and 



Western North Carolina Conference 217 

the Board of Pensions, to make a special study of the Pension Program of our conference 
and to recommend a plan whereby adequate provision could be made to meet the 
increasing pension responsibility in our conference. This special committee's report will 
be presented, and the Board of Pensions concurs with the Commission on World 
Service and Finance in recommending that the conference approve the procedure which 
will be explained and discussed in a series of district meetings to be held at such 
times as the Cabinet may designate during the year of 1965-1966, so that a plan can be 
presented to the Annual Conference at its 1966 session. We may add, however, that 
the Special Report reveals that it will be necessary for us to enter into a funded 
program, the terms and conditions of which will be determined by the Special 
Committee and presented at the district meetings. 

The Board of Pensions hereby notifies those institutions, agencies, or Boards, 
employing full-time conference members, that, beginning with the 1965 session, these 
boards, agencies, and institutions must assume responsibility for annuity claims of the 
conference members in their employment. The amount each institution, agency, or 
board will be expected to pav is twelve times the current annuity rate, which is twelve 
times $64, or a total of $768. 

The Board of Pensions recommends that the yearly pension responsibility for the dis- 
trict superintendents be paid from the District Superintendents' Fund of the Annual Con- 
ference. 

The Board recommends that the conference treasurer issue statements to the boards, 
agencies', and institutions employing full-time conference members on or before the first 
day of October of the current year, and that the conference treasurer turn the receipts 
over to the treasurer of the Board of Pensions and attach thereto a list of those confer- 
ence members for whom the annuity has been paid. 

The Board further recommends that both the audit report and the report of the Board 
of Pensions to the Annual Conference shall carry the list of members for whom the an- 
nuity has been paid. 

This afternoon, at 4:15, the young men entering the Annual Conference are urged 
to meet in Room 201 of Harrell Center, in order to hear Mr. Frank Thornloe of Forest 
City, and a representative of the Social Security Administration, who will interpret for 
them a Social Security Program as it relates to ministers. Of course, any brethren who 
desire to attend are invited, but it is especially important that the new members of the 
Conference attend these sessions. This was strongly urged by the members of the Board 
of Pensions in their regular meeting in Morganton on April 20, 1965.

HORWOOD P. MYERS, Secretary

COMMITTEE ON PUBLISHING INTERESTS 

The Methodist Publishing House is one of America's oldest continuous book publishers 
as well as one of its oldest businesses. The year 1964 marked the 175th anniversary of the 
Publishing House and its long record of service. Included among special anniversary 
projects were a brief history of the Publishing House, a color filmstrip, and a series of 
historical dioramas. All of these were prepared in time for the 1964 General Conference 
and have received widespread attention from the church-at-large. 



226 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

Copies of the filmstrip, The Methodist Publishing House: What Is It? Where Is It? 
have been given to all district directors of your Publishing Interests Committee and are 
available for use in local church training classes, men's clubs, Woman's Society meetings, 
as well as the various conference and district meetings. The filmstrip is available on a 
free loan basis. 

The new children's curriculum materials have been enthusiastically received, and 
your committee views the future as increasingly bright in view of the unusual reception 
of these materials as they have been and are being introduced into churches and church 
schools in this Conference and across the nation. 

The new Book of Worship and revised Methodist Discipline have been produced and 
are now available in our Cokesbury Regional Service Center and Cokesbury stores. The 
new Book of Worship is designed for congregations and individual church members in 
the development of a deeper devotional life. 

The new Church Plan subscription rate for Together magazine puts this colorful and 
timely periodical within the reach of every Methodist family. The plan makes the publi- 
cation available at $2.52 per year when subscribed to through the local church. Sub- 
scription ratio for Together in this Conference stands at one subscription to every 37 
members in the Conference. The ratio for the nation is one in every 14 members. We en- 
courage increased support in this Conference for Together. 

The new Methodist Hymnal, scheduled for delivery in the spring of 1966, is eagerly 
anticipated by all Methodist churches. The Hymnal "samplers" being used during this 
Conference session are supplied by the Publishing House and distributed by the Com- 
mittee on Publishing Interests to introduce the new Hymnal to the Conference. In addi- 
tion, a factual and informative color brochure which contains an order blank for the 
Hymnal, is available for your use. The price of the new edition of the Hymnal, which 
will be available in two colors, liturgical purple and red, has been announced as $3.00 
per copy. Since the initial print order for the Hymnal calls for one million copies, local 
churches are encouraged to place advance orders so that shipments can be made direct 
from the bindery, thereby avoiding the additional cost of enlarging warehousing facili- 
ties. The Publishing House is making the following special offers to our churches: 

1. A cash discount of 5% on all orders for 25 or more copies of the pew edition will 
be granted, providing payment is made in full for the order prior to publication date. 

2. The name of the church ( one line ) will be lettered in gold on each Hymnal free 
of charge on all orders placed before publication. 

3. A monthly installment plan for payment will be granted for churches whose credit 
is satisfactorily established as follows: l0% remittance with order, balance to be paid in 
not more than eleven equal monthly payments. 

The Western North Carolina Conference through its Committee on Publishing In- 
terests recommends and urges the following: 

1. The use of the filmstrip, The Methodist Publishing House: What Is It? Where Is 
It? in local churches to carry the story of the Publishing House to the people it serves. 
This filmstrip is available from your district director of Publishing Interests. 

2. The use of Methodist literature in every church and church school in the Confer- 
ence. 

3. Conference-wide and district-wide promotions of Together magazine. 

4. The formation of Library and Literature committees in each local church. 

5. The purchase of the new Book of Worship in local churches and by individuals 
and families. 

6. Immediate local church planning for advance orders and purchase of the new 
Methodist Hymnal before spring of 1966. Henry a JusticEj chairman

INTERCONFERENCE COMMISSION ON 
COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY RELIGIOUS LIFE 

It is our privilege to sponsor the Methodist Student Movement (MSM). This year the 
MSM has been in die middle of the mission of the church. At a fall retreat attended by 
more than 90 students and their leaders from 20 or so colleges, challenging messages 
were brought by the Reverend David Swain, Minister to Students in Tokyo, Japan. 
He had shown that his call to preach was a call to prepare, and he had never stopped 
that preparation. He saw that the mission is basically the same, whether in Chapel 
Hill or Tokyo, and that the need to make a Christian witness is enormous in eidier 
place. In that spirit, this missionary on furlough stimulated our students. 

The mission was not forgotten. Students kept searching for the proper time and 
place to apply their talents to serve Christ. Tutoring projects were explored; letters 
were written on social concerns, including capital punishment and the Speaker-Ban 
Law. 

Students in some 20 schools began to project themselves into the day-by-day and 
week-by-week tasks of teaching those who for so long have been die victims of 
oppression. To the amazement of many students, a child who received tutoring in 
mathematics improved his grades in reading and spelling and odier subjects also 
almost immediately. The knowledge that somebody cares is what counts. Few of these 
projects are directly under the auspices of the MSM, and not nearly all of the teachers 
are consecrated Christians. Some of them are students who have very little to do with 
the church because they have observed how the church in so many cases has refrained 
from making its witness in times and places of unpopularity and danger. 

A North Carolina minister says that if it had not been for the interracial witness 
of the MSM when most of the rest of the church was silent several years, he probably 
would not be a minister now. But we have not reached enough such young men. Many 
in disillusionment have turned to other causes or given up in despair. More campus 
ministers are needed in order to make our witness more effective. The witness must be 
made wherever the way of freedom, dignity, and love is threatened. 

During the year, as students conceived and initiated projects which involved 
Christian witness, they continued to search for what the mission of the church really 
is. The MSM State Conference had as its theme "Our Unquenchable Quest: Love 
That Lives." The speaking talents of William Mallard of Emory University, the 
dramatic talents of Walter Hudgins of Greensboro College, the dedicated leadership 
of some 25 seminar leaders, and the organizing genius of several students combined 
to create the feeling expressed in F. W. Faber's hymn: 

"For the love of God is broader 
Than the measure of man's mind, 
And the heart of the Eternal 
Is most wonderfully kind." 

An ecumenical witness was made by the participants, including student representa- 
tives from several denominations, a minister from the Evangelical United Brethren 
Church, Dean Robert Cushman of Duke Divinity School who spoke on the Vatican 
Council, and a grass-roots group of Roman Catholic laymen who presented the 
American Mass Program composed in the style of the Negro spiritual. 

Under the leadership of Mrs. Edgar B. Fisher, N. C. Conference Secretary for 
Campus Ministry of the Woman's Society of Christian Service, and many other 
dedicated laymen and ministers, thousands of dollars were raised to help send approxi- 
mately one hundred students to the National Quadrennial Methodist Student Conference 
held in Lincoln, Nebraska, during the Christmas holidays. There, through fellowship 
with many others like them, our students were given a new vision of what it means to be 
in the middle of the mission of the Church in the twentieth century. They received 
a new glimpse of the power they have in government and politics and of the necessity 
that conscience control our actions. 

At the spring Leadership Retreat for the MSM of North Carolina new officers 
gathered and received instructions for their tasks. Leaders were from the North 
Carolina Council of Churches, the campus ministry, the local pastorate, conference 
boards of Education and Missions, and the overseas mission field. 

Representatives from the General Board of Education of The Methodist Church 
have agreed to help the Interconference Commission in a study of our campus ministry 



Western North Carolina Conference 229 

in North Carolina. The initial part of the study, already under way in Chapel Hill, 
will be limited to a few Wesley Foundations. 

At Chapel Hill the long-awaited modern building to house the Wesley Foundation 
will be opened in the autumn of 1965. This beautiful and spacious structure will 
include a chapel (widi an organ donated by the Kresge Foundation), lounges, seminar 
rooms, a coffee shop, an art gallery, a library, a kitchen, guest rooms, and office space. 
Its design won the award for Methodist Student Centers at the National Methodist 
Student Conference in 1961. 

Every school in the state has been invited to submit an estimate in the fall of 
1965 concerning their needs five years hence and ten years hence, in order to enable 
the Interconference Commission to give a more realistic report to the commissions on 
World Service and Finance of the three Annual Conferences who supply our funds. 
Several Wesley Foundations and other groups already are engaged in this study. It 
is anticipated that the study will cover capital needs as well as program needs. 

Developments taking place in the campus ministry in North Carolina include an 
added emphasis on securing and keeping qualified personnel to minister to students. 
A committee has been set up to explore training personnel, sabbatical leaves, and 
retirement. 

We look with pleasure upon the fact that subscriptions to motive magazine in 
North Carolina have more than doubled during the past year. We commend our 
General Board of Education for producing this magazine of such high quality and 
for the pioneering way in which motive explores new ways of communicating the gospel, 
gospel. 

We are indebted to a number of persons for the sacrificial manner in which they 

have ministered to students in our state. Those to whose salaries we contribute include: 

The Reverend Robert Alexander, Assistant Methodist Campus Minister at Raleigh 

The Reverend William T. Brown, Methodist Campus Minister at A.&T. College, 

Greensboro 

The Reverend Jackson W. Carroll, Chaplain to Methodist Students at Duke Uni- 
versity, Durham

236 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

Report W 

THE INTERJURISDICTIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE 
WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA CONFERENCE 

The major branches of Methodism united in 1939. The Plan of Union required the 
creation of the Central Jurisdiction containing the 19 Negro Annual Conferences. Al- 
though our Negro brethren were not pleased with the Plan of Union, and 17 of their 19 
Annual Conferences voted against the Plan, it is doubtful that union could have been 
achieved without creation of the Central Jurisdiction. 

Reaction to Jurisdictional Structure 

In 1944 the Central Jurisdiction's College of Bishops noted some dissatisfaction with 
the jurisdictional structure and expressed the hope that Methodism would become mature 
enough to find a more excellent way. The Central Jurisdiction Conference of 1948 ap- 
pointed a study committee which reported to the succeeding conference in 1952 that the 
Central Jurisdiction had some good and bad features, but made no recommendation for 
change. The 1952 Central Jurisdiction Conference appointed another study committee 
which reported to the Conference of 1956. This committee pointed out that there were 
good and bad features inherent in the Jurisdiction structure, but made no recommenda- 
tion for change in structure. 

The Jurisdictional system gave all regions representation in policy-making bodies, 
afforded Negroes the opportunity to achieve prominent leadership in The Methodist 
Church, and gave them representation on general boards and agencies substantially in 
excess of their numerical strength. The system gave The Methodist Church thorough 
integration at top levels and in its policy-making bodies. Nevertheless, this structure has 
left the rank and file membership segregated on the basis of race. As a consequence, 
many Methodists feel that this racially-segregated administrative structure is a fact and 
a symbol of racialism within The Methodist Church; and furthermore, that this racial 
structure must be abolished. 

General Conference has been swamped with thousands of memorials dealing with the 
Jurisdictional system and especially the racially-segregated Central Jurisdiction. Over 
4,000 such memorials came to the General Conference in 1956. As a result of such 
widespread concern, this Genral Conference did two things : ( 1 ) It drafted Amendment 
IX to the Constitution of the Church, and (2) created the Commission to Study and 
Recommend Action Concerning the Jurisidctional System, hereinafter referred to as the 
Commission of 70. 

Amendment IX makes provision for a church to transfer from one Annual Conference 
to another upon a two-thirds vote of the local church and each of the two Annual Con- 
ferences involved. It also provides that an Annual Conference may transfer from one Ju- 
risdiction to another upon a two-thirds vote of an Annual Conference and the Annual 
Conferences of each of the two Jurisdictions concerned. The Amendment was adopted and 
became effective on April 8, 1958, when the bishops announced that the necessary votes 
in the Annual Conferences had been obtained. Action under the Amendment is motivated 
by democratic voluntarism. 

When the General Conference of 1960 convened it discovered that only a limited 
number of churches had transferred out of the Central Jurisdiction under provisions of 
Amendment IX and that only three dozen transfers were in process. The Commission of 
70 recommended to the General Conference of 1960 that no constitutional change, with 
respect to the Central Jurisdiction, be made until Amendment IX had been in operation 
for sufficient time to gauge its effectiveness. 

A motion from the floor of the 1960 General Conference calling for a Constitutional 
Amendment to terminate the Central Jurisdiction by 1968 was lost by a close vote. The 
Commission of 70 recommended that the church proceed to eliminate the Central Juris- 
diction by voluntary transfers under Amendment IX, and that a Commission on Inter- 
jurisdictional Relations composed of 36 members, six from each Jurisdiction, be estab- 
lished under a mandate to continue study of the Central Jurisdiction and report to the 
General Conference of 1964. outlining a plan for its elimination. Hereinafter this Com- 
mission is referred to as the Commission of 36. 

Plan of Action Adopted By the 1964 General Conference 

The Commission of 36 brought a report to General Conference of 1964, which in- 
cluded a plan, based upon the principle of voluntarism, for the elimination of the Central 
Jurisdiction by 1968. In its report the Commission of 36 listed reasons for the reluctance 



Western North Carolina Conference 237 

of churches and conferences to utilize Amendment IX. The report was framed in the 
light of reasons for this reluctance. The Commission expressed its concern with matters 
of structure and organization in The Methodist Church, but noted a greater concern for 
the creation of Christian understanding and brotherhood, which must be developed at the 
grass roots of the church. It underlined the facts that the church is the body of Christ 
and that all persons, who seek to be saved from their sins and desire to be truly Christian 
in faith and practice, are suitable subjects for membership. It recognized that the church 
cannot fulfill its God-given mission of becoming the fellowship of Christ unless all chil- 
dren of our heavenly Father may come together within its membership to pray, sing, 
worship and serve God. 

The Commission challenged every Methodist, whatever his race or station in life, 
whatever his office or place in the church, to evaluate, with a sensitive conscience, what- 
ever he is doing in terms of whether it contributes to better understanding between and 
is motivated by Christian love for all men. 

The Commission gave expression to the difficult matters to be faced in eliminating 
the Central Jurisdiction. It faced the financial factors involved in pensions and salary 
support, and offered suggestions for solving these thorny problems. It considered matters 
of ministerial recruitment and training and made recommendations to meet these con- 
tingencies. 

The report came to grips with the difficult problems of ministerial requirements, train- 
ing, qualifications and itinerancy. It recommended that no minister lose his conference 
relationship through elimination of the Central Jurisdiction. 

The Plan of Action for the elimination of the Central Jurisdiction, recommended by 
the Commission of 36 to the General Conference of 1964, perfected and adopted by 
that Conference, involves a considerable number of details. 

Actions required by the plan which are important for our consideration are three in 
number: (1) It requires the Central Jurisdiction to realign its Annual Conferences so 
that each will fall exclusively within the boundaries of one of the regional Jurisdictions. 
Since the General Conference of 1964 the Central Jurisdiction, in good faith, has carried 
out this recommendation. (2) The second action recommended is the reception of these 
realigned Central Jurisdiction Annual Conferences into the particular regional Jurisdic- 
tion in which each lies. The procedure to be followed is outlined in Amendment IX and 
waits upon voluntary action of the conferences concerned. (3) The third action recom- 
mended is the merger of the former Central Jurisdiction Annual Conferences with the 
Annual Conferences of the respective regional Jurisdiction. This will make necessary the 
creation of new Episcopal areas and, in some instances, the realignment of Annual Con- 
ference boundaries. 

Implementation of the Plan of Action requires the cooperation of all Jurisdictions 
and all Annual Conferences. It demands whatever concessions and sacrifices are neces- 
sary, on the part of all Methodists, in order to achieve the goal of an inclusive church. 

As a means of facilitating this Plan of Action, it was recommended that each Annual 
Conference designate a committee or a commission to meet with the designated groups 
from the other Conferences involved to discuss and work out together the numerous ad- 
justments involved in the transfer of Central Jurisdiction Annual Conferences into 
regional Jurisdictions. Your committee making this report was created for this purpose 
and has had three joint meetings with its counterpart from the North Carolina-Virginia 
Annual Conference of the Central Jurisdiction, in addition to its other meetings. 

The Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference, meeting at Lake Junaluska, July 8-12, 
1964, adopted a resolution requesting its constituent conferences to vote in favor of 
inviting the Annual Conferences of the Central Jurisdiction, lying within its boundaries, 
to transfer into the Southeastern Jurisdiction. It also requested a ruling of the Judicial 
Council on whether each regional Jurisdiction is sole authority for establishment of 
boundaries of its Annual Conferences. 

The Central Jurisdiction Conference, meeting at Daytona Beach, Fla., June 16-21, 
1964, had before it the Plan of Action adopted by the General Conference, and ap- 
proved guidelines for its Annual Conferences to follow in acting upon invitations to 
transfer into regional Jurisdictions. The following recommendations constitute these 
guidelines : 

That the Jurisdictional Conferences establish the following criteria to govern 
transfer of an Annual Conference from the Central Jurisdiction to a regional Juris- 
diction: (a) Agreement of the receiving regional Jurisdiction that all of its Annual 
Conferences shall be so constituted as to include all local Methodist churches in a 
designated geographical area, regardless of the racial characteristics of the mem- 



23S Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

bership of the local church, (b) Agreement of the Annual Conferences of the 
receiving regional Jurisdiction that they shall implement the law of The Methodist 
Church guaranteeing to ministers of the transferring Central Jurisdiction Con- 
ference the same status, rights, privileges, and responsibilities under the same 
conditions as other ministers of those conferences. ( c ) Agreement of the Annual 
Conferences of the receiving Jurisdiction that opportunities for lay participation 
in and enjoyment of the benefits of all programs, activities, and institutions of 
those conferences shall be provided without regard to race or color. ( d ) Agree- 
ment of the Jurisdictional Conference of each receiving regional Jurisdiction in- 
volved that it will request the Council of Bishops to transfer to that regional Juris- 
diction for presidential and residential supervision the bishop of the Central Juris- 
diction assigned to preside over the transferring conference (or conferences.) 

The newly-constituted North Carolina-Virginia Conference of the Central Jurisdiction 
gave consideration to this matter and adopted a resolution which contains the following 
statement: 

Each Annual Conference of the Southeastern Jurisdiction, by the adoption of 
the Plan, shall be deemed to have accepted into its membership, upon the effective 
date of the Plan, the following persons: 

All ministerial members ( whether on trial or in full connection ) of the North 
Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference who are then appointed to churches located 
geographically within its boundaries. 

All ministerial members of the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference 
( whether on trial or in full connection ) under special appointment who then hold 
their quarterly conference membership in a local church located geographically 
within its boundaries. 

All retired ministerial members of the North Carolina- Virginia Annual Con- 
ferences who hold their quarterly conference membership in a local church located 
geographically within its boundaries. 

The General Conference's Plan of eliminating the Central Jurisdiction involves two 
steps: (1) The transfer of realigned Annual Conferences of the Central Jurisdiction into 
the respective Regional Jurisdiction where said Annual Conferences lie; and (2) The 
merger of Annual Conferences and realignment of Annual Conferences within the re- 
gional Jurisdiction, in each case pursuant to the voluntary procedures of Amendment IX. 
A time lapse of undetermined length may ensue between these two steps. 

The guidelines laid down by the Central Jurisdiction, and approved by the North 
Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference of said Jurisdiction, require that the two steps 
shall be taken simultaneously, that is, with no time lapse between them. It would be 
noted that this action requires consolidation of steps one ond two of the Plan adopted by 
the General Conference of 1964. 

Areas of Cooperation 

Four committee was heartened to discover many areas where Methodists are already 
working together without regard to race. A list of these inclusive areas of cooperation is 
as follows: 

1. The Inter-Conference Commission on College and University Religious Work is 
inclusive, and includes members from the North Carolina, Western North Carolina and 
the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conferences. The commission supervises all Meth- 
odist student work in North Carolina. 

2. The Board of Managers of the North Carolina Pastors' School is inclusive and 
each of the three conferences mentioned above elects representatives to the Board. 

3. In November of 1963 a tri-conference workshop was held in Greensboro, N. C, 
planned and executed by the Boards of Christian Social Concerns of the conferences 
mentioned above. 

4. The same three Conference Boards of Christian Social Concerns cooperated finan- 
cially in sending a member of the Central Jurisdiction Committee on the European 
Study Mission. 

5. Members of the Central Jurisdiction have been entertained in the homes of some 
members of the Southeastern Jurisdiction during meetings of seminars and workshops. 

6. Jurisdictional and Conference level workshops and Christian Workers' Schools 
have been conducted on an integrated basis, and beginning this year the Jurisdictional 
Youth Conference will be integrated also. 

7. Integrated special services have been held in many churches and communities of 
our Conference. 



Western North Carolina Conference 239 

8. Some of the Annual District Conferences of the Woman's Society of Christian 
Service have been conducted on an integrated basis. 

9. Some of the Christian Workers' Schools of our Conference have integrated Boards 
of Managers and conduct integrated schools. 

10. Some local Methodist churches have promoted integrated community service 
projects and have pioneered in better community and race relations. 

11. The four colleges of this Conference and Duke University are open to persons 
without regard to race. 

Recommendations 

After study and prayer your committee believes that the elimination of the Central 
Jurisdiction, as a fact and symbol of racism, is in the best interest of The Methodist 
church; that this will require concessions and adjustments from all Methodists; and that 
the Lord of the Church calls us to move forward in a strong faith that He will guide 
and strengthen us as we seek to obey Him. 

We therefore make the following recommendations to this Annual Conference: 

1. That joint meetings of Conference Boards and Committees be held for cooperative 
planning and work. 

2. That our participation in the North Carolina Pastors' School and the Inter-Con- 
ference Commission on College and University Religious Work continue on an integrated 
basis. 

3. That the pages of the North Carolina Christian Advocate be increasingly utilized 
for news from the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference of the Central Jurisdic- 
tion. 

4. That we emphasize that our churches are open to all persons who seek to worship 
God. 

5. That the exchange of pulpits between pastors of Negro and white Methodist 
churches be encouraged on a basis of mutual agreement and good will. 

6. That all inclusive programs of training, worship and fellowship now in existence 
be encouraged and that the extension of such programs become increasingly the respon- 
sibility of every member of this Conference. 

7. That we keep faith with the General Conference and the Southeastern Jurisdic- 
tion Conference by supporting wholeheartedly the "Plan of Action for the Elimination 
of the Central Jurisdiction," as adopted by the General Conference of 1964, and espe- 
cially, by voting at this Conference to issue an invitation to the Annual Conferences of 
the Central Jurisdiction, lying within the bounds of the Southeastern Jurisdiction, to 
transfer into the Southeastern Jurisdiction, which represents step number one of the 
plan adopted by the General Conference in 1964. 

8. That the Committee on Inter-Jurisdiction Relations continue conversations with 
the similar committee of the North Carolina-Virginia Annual Conference and give study 
and guidance to our Conference in implementing the action of the General Conference

Central Jurisdiction by establishing a target date for the merging of the Annual Con- 
ferences therein. J. Clay Madison, Chairman

THE METHODIST BOARD OF PUBLICATION, INC. 

The Methodist Board of Publication, Inc., created by the two Conferences of The 
Methodist Church in North Carolina, is responsible for producing the North Carolina 
Christian Advocate and operating the Piedmont Press. The Board is prepared to report 
to the Conferences the following: 

1. January and February were observed as "Advocate months" during which time 
several thousand subscriptions, new and renewals, were received. This represented tire 
fruit of the labor of our editor, S. J. Starnes, and the loyal support of our bishops, 
district superintendents, and district directors of the Advocate, as well as our pastors, 
local church Advocate directors and members. 

2. The Board is pleased with the format and general effectiveness of the North 
Carolina Christian Advocate in the life of our Conferences, but it is not complacent. 
A committee made up of persons not on the Board has been appointed to make a 



240 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

study of editorial practices and make suggestions for strengthening what we consider 
to be a good publication. 

3. While other Conferences find it necessary to provide subsidies for their con- 
ference papers, the Methodist Board of Publication operates at no cost to the two 
Conferences. 

4. The Piedmont Press, operated as a subsidiary of the Methodist Board of Publi- 
cation, Inc., has shown a profit not sufficient to offset die loss involved in producing die 
North Carolina Christian Advocate. This year's preliminarv report indicates a net loss 
of $1,261.64, which is clue in part to — 

(1) necessary increases in salaries and improvements. 

(2) no subsidies from Annual Conferences. 

(3) income due, but not yet received. 

The auditor's report was not completed at time of this statement. It will be available 
in its entirety for inspection by anyone. 

The Board makes the following requests of the Conferences: 

1. That the Conferences, in addition to the usual campaigns promoting subscriptions, 
adopt as their goals the placing of the Advocate in the hands of all members of the 
Official Board during the coming year. To that end we solicit the co-operation and 
earnest endeavor of district directors of the Advocate, pastors and local church directors 
of the Christian Advocate. 

2. Recognizing the fact diat the prollt from the operation of the Piedmont Press 
is used to subsidize the publication of the Advocate, we call upon all our Conference 
boards and agencies and local churches to patronize the Piedmont Press. 

The Board expresses gratitude for the continued loyalty of the pastors and laymen 
of North Carolina to the North Carolina Christian Advocate. We are indebted to Bishop 
Paul N. Garber and Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr. and other leaders in our Conferences and 
local churches for their labors in the promotion of subscriptions and in the making of the 
North Carolina Christian Advocate an effective publication. 

We continue to be grateful for the services and leadership of the Reverend S. J. 
Staines, Editor-Manager. 

N. E. Edgerton of Raleigh, from the North Carolina Conference, and T. C. Hoyle, 
Jr. of Greensboro, from the Western North Carolina Conference, are renominated for 
terms to expire in 1970.

Report A-l 
SUPERANNUATE ENDOWMENT FUND 

The trustees of the Superannuate Endowment Fund of the Western North Carolina 
Conference herewith present their 39th annual report. 

This fund was begun 38 years ago at the District Conference of the Charlotte District 
by several great Methodist laymen who decided to improve the pension payments to our 
superannuated ministers of this Conference. Their liberality and interest bore much fruit 
in several ways. They not only gave and helped to raise a sizeable endowment fund, but 
they also helped to create in the W. N. C. Conference an awareness of the need to in- 
crease annual givings for the use of our Board of Pensions. 

The income from this Superannuate Endowment Fund contributes substantially to 
the pension funds for our Conference claimants. It is our hope that additional funds 
can be seemed to increase the corpus of this trust, and thus increase the yearly income 
of the Trust Fund so greatly needed. 

Every new gift, large or small, will increase our ability to make our yearly contribu- 
tion that much larger for our Conference claimants. We, therefore, urge all members of 
the W. N. C. Conference to help us secure additional funds. All gifts — small, medium, 
or large — are needed. 

Over the past several years our income has increased annually so that each year we 
have been privileged to donate to the Conference Board of Pensions a check for a larger 
amount than the year previous. 

Today we are again happy to present to Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr., and through Bishop 
Hunt and the Board of Pensions, to our Conference claimants, our check for the largest 
amount yet produced by this Fund — twenty-three thousand eight hundred sixty-eight 
dollars and ninety-five cents ($23,868.95). We believe this will provide almost $4.00 
per service year for each of the Conference claimants. 

In our report to you one year ago we stated that with our check presented then, this 
Superannuate Endowment Fund had paid into the Board of Pensions of our Conference 
a total of $486,808.03. Add today's check of $23,868.95 to last year's total makes a grand 
total to date of $510,676.98, a truly marvelous accomplishment! 

The annual meeting of the trustees of the Superannuate Endowment Fund of the 
Western North Carolina Conference was held in Charlotte on May 26, 1965, when the 
following trustees were nominated for a new four-year term subject to confirmation by 
this Annual Conference, namelv: W. R. Cuthbertson, George M. Ivey and Marshall I. 
Pickens, all of Charlotte, N. C. 

The trustees also re-elected the following officers for the new Conference year or until 
their successors are elected, and request that this Conference also confirm the election of 
the officers of the Board of Trustees, namely: Edwin L. Jones, Chairman; George M. 
Ivey, First Vice-Chairman; Judge J. Spencer Bell, Second Vice-Chairman; W. Reynolds 
Cuthbertson, Secretary-Treasurer. 

The itemized financial report of W. Reynolds Cuthbertson, Treasurer, is attached 
hereto for the records of this Conference. The Treasurer's report is a detailed one and 
shows the income, expenses and investments of the Superannuate Endowment Fund of 
the Western North Carolina Conference. At all times we are guided both by the Invest- 
ment Committee and by the Trust Department of the Wachovia Bank and Trust Com- 
pany, as well as by the trustees of the Fund. We believe that all accounts are carefully- 
handled and administered.

Report A-2 
THE BISHOPS COMMITTEE ON PREACHING 

I. Foreword 

At a meeting of the Cabinet, October 22-23, 1964, Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr. expressed 
his conviction that the preaching ministry is a priority for the Christian pastor and the 
local church. 

The modern Christian pastor has many roles to fill in his ministry. He is a preacher, 
but he is also a priest, a counselor, a teacher, an administrator and a member of a de- 
nominational and a civic community, with their inherent opportunities far fruitful self- 
giving. His heavy and sometimes excessive involvement in filling these roles, integral and 
important as they are to the depth and width and permanence of his ministry, may over- 
shadow and diminish his role as preacher. Professional identity as a "preacher" may be 
lost in his multiple-role life: the quality of his preaching may decline as he fills other 
functions and neglects the discipline required for effectual preaching; and confidence in 
the superior efficacy of preaching may fade as other ministries appear to be more redemp- 
tive. Thee total result is often an eclipse of his role as preacher and a reduction of preach- 
ing to a secondary place among his ministries. 

When this happens to the modern Christian pastor, it also happens to the church and 
to the people to whom he is called to preach. Forms of ministry other than preaching 
receive priority as the church seeks to minister and the people seek a ministry. Preaching 
loses prestige as the pre-eminent form of Christian ministry, and there is a lack of preach- 
ers and of hearers. 

Bishop Hunt stated his desire to have in the Western North Carolina Annual Con- 
ference a continuing program that would magnify the priority and improve the quality 
of the preaching ministry. To accomplish the desired results such a program would have 
to be brought to where the preachers and the pulpits are — into the conference, into sub- 
conference areas and into pastors' studies. 

A committee from the Cabinet was appointed by Bishop Hunt and assigned the re- 
sponsibility of considering ways of initiating and carrying forward an emphasis on preach- 
ing which would: "Set up more creative opportunities for study in homiletics; give spe- 
cial recognition for sermons written and preached by young men, with awards being sets 
of good books, summer study opportunities, etc.; make special funds available to young 
men for purchase of books which they should be reading but do not have the money to 
buy; provide an endowed lectureship in the area of homiletics." 

II. Program Recommendations 

The committee recognizes that the idea of magnifying the priority and improving the 
quality of the pulpit ministry behind the bishop's proposals is a living thing and, there- 
tore, needs to be provided freedom to develop and grow. To start the idea on its way 
toward growth and development, the committee recommends: 

A. That a continuing homiletical education program be established to be named The 
Institute for Homiletical Studies of the Western North Carolina Annual Conference. 

B. That the stated purpose of the Institute be to do those things which will bring to 
the Conference, to its various sections and to the studies of the ministers a continuing 
homiletical education program that will: 

1. Magnify the pre-eminence of preaching in the divine calling of the Christian 
pastor; ' I I " I I !«M ] 

2. Maintain a strong confidence in the preached Word as the preferred form of 
Christian ministry; 

3. Challenge and .stimulate preachers to accept the disciplines required for preach- 
ing to become the peculiar means by which the people and the church may hear the com- 
manding, judging and saving Word of God in the contemporary situation; and, through 
hearing, may experience a vital encounter with God; 

4. Inspire and sustain the eagerness to preach and to hear preaching which has 
traditionally characterized both the preachers and the people of The Methodist Church. 

C. That the Institute include among the initial features of its program the following 
projects : 

1. A Bishop's Reading Program in Homiletics which will provide: 

a. An annually revised list of recommended books on preaching to all minis- 
ters receiving their first pastoral appointment and to all other ministers upon request; 

b. An award of a book to each man receiving a pastoral appointment when 



244 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

admitted on trial; and, thereafter one each year for three years upon certification that he 
has read during the year three books recommended on the book list; 

c. A "Bishop's Book on Pleaching" selected annually and recommended to all 
ministers serving pastoral appointments. 

d. "Reading Groups ' in the districts growing from study of and centering 
around "Bishop's Book on Preaching." 

2. Clinics in Preaching for Approved Supplies which will: 

a. Include lectures and critiques on sermon content, communication and con- 
struction; 

1). Comprise six four-hour sessions for six consecutive weeks, or a total of twen- 
ty-four hours; 

c. Enroll about forty in each clinic; 

d. Employ professors of homiietics and theology for the lectures and use on 
a voluntary basis full members of the conference as the leaders of the critique groups. 

3. An Award Sermon Challenge which will: 

Invite probationers and members of the conference having six years or less 
of effective service to submit each year one of the sermons preached to their congrega- 
tions from which the best sermons wili be selected, and to which special recognition shall 
be given by some appropriate award. 

4. Lectures on Preaching which will: 

a. Bring to the conference internationally recognized preachers, teachers, and 
theologians for quality instruction in preaching. 

b. Offer more advanced studies *'au those provided by the Clinics in Preach- 
ing for Approved Supplies. 

c. Admit ail men serving pastoral appointments — conference members, pro- 
bationers and approved supplies. 

d. Be Held annually over a three-day span and include no less than 16 hours 
of lectures and clinical sessions. 

e. Contract the lectures in such a manner as to give the contractor ownership. 
f. Provide for publication of the lectures. 

5. Bishop's Talk-Back Sessions with Young Ministers which will: 

a. Admit probationers and full conference members with six years or less of 
effective service who are serving pastorates, thus giving about 150 men an opportunity 
to engage annually in these discussions. 

b. Supply a "feed-back" for the "Bishop's Reading Program," the "Bishop's 
Lectures on Preaching" and "Award Sermons" in addition to offering opportunity for 
sharing problems and concerns relevant to the preaching ministry. 

c. Contain four sessions to be held at locations determined by the geographical 
distribution of the men involved, and on dates scheduled in order to provide each quali- 
fied preacher two opportunities to attend one of the sessions. 

III. Recommendations for Structure, Support and Development

SUGGESTIONS FOR OBSERVANCE OF THE BICENTENNIAL 
OF METHODISM IN AMERICA IN 



We as a people like to observe birthdavs and anniversaries. Surely the 200th anni- 
versary of Methodism on these shores should be widely celebrated, and the heritage that 
is ours in this great church emphasized anew. But if the bicentennial of Methodism in 
America is to mean much to our people, if it is to be widely known, it will have to be 
observed and emphasized on the level of the local church. Conference resolutions and 
Historical Society plans will amount to nothing unless we as pastors and laymen from 
local congregations take it upon ourselves to make this anniversary significant. It is my 
purpose to offer a few suggestions as to how the bicentennial celebration may be observed 
so as to touch the lives of our people. One hundred years ago, on the first Sunday in 
January 1866, Methodist ministers were asked to preach on the historical significance of 
the Centennial of Methodism in America. Now that we are approaching the bicentennial, 
it seems most appropriate that we follow this example, and on the first Sunday in January 
next year, hold before our congregations the historic significance of 200 years of Meth- 
odism in our land. It is suggested that we all do this. Wesley's Covenant Service and 
this emphasis can easily be combined. In addition to preaching about history, the writing 
of history is also encouraged as one means of observing this bicentennial. Many of our 
local churches have already prepared and distributed written accounts of their beginnings. 
These historical accounts should be brought up to date. And in those churches where 
local history has never been written, it should be done. Copies of these local histories 
should be widely distributed among the members, and offered to local newspapers. The 
Conference archives in Statesville, and local public libraries should also be sent copies. 
The student of Methodist history by groups within the local church is also a good means 
of highlighting the bicentennial celebration. Sometime in the fall, each pastor will receive 



246 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

information about a little book. The Drama of Early Methodism, written by the pastor of 
old St. George's Church in Philadelphia. The booklet will be useful in such a study of 
our heritage, and will be available at moderate cost, showing the shrines and other his- 
toric sites of American Methodism. Already available is a free study guide to the three 
which should be erected at some of the churches. If so, the Historical Society will assist 
in the preparation for such projects. 

Within the bounds of our Conference, there are many institutions — homes, schools, 
colleges, hospitals — whose history should also be recorded or brought up to date. Such 
accounts when they are published should also be widely distributed, and preserved in 
libraries and the Conference archives. 

On a national level, the bicentennial celebration will be observed in Baltimore, April 
21-24, 1966. Each Annual Conference is being asked to appoint ten or twenty persons as 
representatives to attend a meeting to be held in the Baltimore Civic Center. It is antici- 
pated that as many as ten to twelve thousand persons will come together in a great wit- 
ness to the heritage that is ours as Methodists. There are no quotas for this meeting. AH 
who desire to attend arc welcome. But in order for the Western North Carolina Annual 
Conference to be officially represented, we ask that the Conference name the following 
persons as our official representatives: R. H. Nicholson, J. W. Lasley, J. J. Powell, G. W. 
Bumgarner, Harvey T. Smith, Sr., Miss Vada Tohnson, Robert M. Smith, E. L. Jones, Sr., 
Elmer T. Clark, E. H. Nease, Sr., Mrs. E. D. Atkins, Jr., Lee F. Turtle, Charles D. White, 
Charles Henderson, Mrs. L. E. Barnhardt, Aubert M. Smith, T. E. Carroll, E. H. Lowman,

SPECIAL COMMITTEE APPOINTED AT THE 1963 ANNUAL 
CONFERENCE TO STUDY PENSION STRUCTURE 

At the 1963 Annual Conference a special committee composed of the following rep- 
resentatives of ( 1 ) the Conference Board of Pensions: A. G. Lackey, G. G. Adams, Jr., 
James R. Felts, Jr., and T. Max Watson; and (2) the Commission on World Service and 
Finance: Herbert M. Wayne, R. P. Caldwell, M. Teague Hipps, and D. Edwin Bailey, 
were appointed to determine the present and the long-range requirements for the pen- 
sioners of the Western North Carolina Conference and to recommend ways and means 
to provide satisfactorily for these requirements. 

As authorized, the committee was convened by the Reverend A. G. Lackey, and 
James R. Felts, Jr. and Herbert M. Wayne were elected chairman and vice-chairman, 
respectively. Under the authority granted by the Conference, this committee, after care- 
ful consideration, employed Pension Service, Incorporated, of Winston-Salem, North 
Carolina, as its professional counsel in the study. It soon became evident to the com- 
mittee that one year was not sufficient time to properly conduct and carry out its assign- 
ment and therefore no report was made at the 1964 Annual Conference. 

Shortly after the beginning of the current (1964) conference year the composition 
of the committee, by mutual consent, was enlarged to include the officers of the present 
Commission on World Service and Finance ( R. Powell Majors, Carter Holbrook, and 
Robert H. Stamey) and the Executive Committee of the Conference Board of Pensions 
(James W. Fowler, Jr., John H. Carper, H. V. Myers, Jr., A. P. Harris, Robin Hood, 
and Fletcher Nelson). 

Many hours of research have been spent by our professional counsel and by members 
of our committee and details of our findings to date have been shared with both the 
Commission on World Service and Finance and the Conference Board of Pensions. 

As a result and consequence of our deliberations we report and recommend the fol- 
lowing: 

1. In consultation with our actuary, officials of the Conference Board of Pensions 
and of the Commission on World Service and Finance, your committee proposes to final- 
ize a plan wherebv the Western North Carolina Conference may come into the Ministers' 
Reserve Pension Fund of The Methodist Church in toto or in part. 

2. That a series of district meetings be held during the 1965-66 conference year at 
which the proposed plan will be discussed and explained and amended. 

3. That the finalized plan to be recommended be brought before the 1966 Annual 
Conference for consideration and action by that body.

BOARD OF CONFERENCE TRUSTEES 

During tbe conference year closing in June, 1965, the annual conference Board of 
Trustees has taken the following actions, pursuant to the instructions of the 1964 An- 
nual Conference and the provisions of the Discipline: 

( 1 ) We have sold and conveyed title to the property of the New Zion Methodist 
Church, south Randolph County, to the New Zion Memorial Association, for a sale price 



Western North Carolina Conference 249 

of $10.00, proceeds of which sale were given to the Randolph County Board of Mis- 
sions, as per action of the conference, recorded on page 101 of the 1964 Journal. 

( 2 ) We have sold and conveyed title to a small piece of property in Morgan Town- 
ship, Rutherford County, to Montsford Cove Baptist Church, for $150.00, the proceeds of 
which sale were conveyed to the Marion District Mission Society, as per action of the 
conference, recorded on page 101 of the 1964 Journal. 

(3) We have transferred title to house and lot located at 46 West Street, Asheville, 
to the Reverend L. C. Stevens, it already having been paid for, as per action of the con- 
ference, recorded on pages 84-85 of the 1964 Journal. 

(4) We have conferred with Bishop Earl G. Hunt, Jr. about his wishes in regard to 
an episcopal residence in Charlotte, in response to a request made of the conference trus- 
tees by the retiring Bishop Nolan B. Harmon, Jr. Bishop Hunt made no request of the 
conference trustees at that time. The trustees stand ready to be of assistance as needed. 

(5) The conference trustees were asked by Bishop Nolan B. Harmon, Jr. to look 
thoroughly into the status of the Methodist church property at Blowing Rock, and to 
report their findings and recommendations. On the basis of our findings, the Board offers 
the opinion that title to the Blowing Rock Methodist Church property is held by a Board 
of Trustees, consisting of L. S. Rankin, Annie B. Smith and Leon S. Ivey. Our opinion 
is that this Board of Trustees is a body especially created by the quarterly conference 
of the Boone Methodist Church, and originally constituted in 1948 at the suggestion of 
Bishop Costen J. Harrell. The Boone quarterly conference which created this Blowing 
Rock Board of Trustees was presided over by the Reverend John W. Hoyle, Jr., then 
superintendent of the Marion District, with Mr. Willis Chester, of Boone, serving as 
secretary. It is our opinion, further, that although it appears that there are now not more 
than two permanent residents of Blowing Rock who are members of The Methodist 
Church, there is a lively and vital opportunity for summer services in the Blowing Rock 
Church, for the benefit of the summer colony. It is our opinion that the responsible sum- 
mer Methodist residents, together with the pastor in charge of the Boone Methodist 
Church, the superintendent of the North Wilkesboro District, and the bishop of the con- 
ference, can and should make suitable summer provision for supply pastoral and preach- 
ing service, to the glory of God and the advancement of The Methodist Church. 

(6) The conference trustees, through their fiscal agent, the Wachovia Bank and 
Trust Company, have during this year made the following payments from the earnings of 
the four funds which the trustees administer: 

(a) $1,400.00 was paid to the Conference Claimant Board from the earnings of 
the General Fund, the estimated book value of which is $48,302.85. 

(b) $1,200.00 was paid to Brevard College from the earnings of the Higgins 
Fund, the estimated book value of which is $41,191.88. 

(c) $400.00 was paid to Brevard College from the earnings of the Centenary- 
Rutherford Fund, the estimated book value of which is $20,220.65. 

(d) $1,400.00 was paid to the W. N. C. Conference treasurer of the Woman's 
Society of Christian Service, from the earnings of the Bell Memorial Fund, the estimated 
book value of which is $37,527.04. 

The fiscal agent made report as of May 7, 1965, and a copy has been mailed to each 
member of the Board of Trustees. Action on this report was taken at the June 10 meeting 
of the Board, and this action will be reported to the fiscal agent for subsequent action. 

The following were nominated by the Board to serve as trustees, their terms to expire 
in 1968, and their election by the Conference is requested: George Corn, James B. Mc- 
Larty, Russell T. Montfort, and Wilson O. Weldon. 

The following officers were elected for the year 1965-1966: Chairman, Howard C. 
Wilkinson; Vice-Chairman, Richard E. Thigpen; Secretary-Treasurer, George D. Finch. 

HOWARD C. WILKINSON, Chairman 
GEORGE D. FINCH, Secretary-Treasurer 

Ordered to record, with necessary elections: Morning Session, June 12, 1965.

Western North Carolina Conference 



289 



IX 

Historical 



1. Historical Sketch 



"The Western North Carolina Conference shall include all North Carolina 
west of the North Carolina Conference, except Savannah Church, in Alleghany 
County, North Carolina; and also that part of North Carolina lying north of New 
River, and including that part of Virginia lying south of that river in the loop in 
Grayson County, Virginia; including all the territory in Carroll and Patrick 
Counties, Virginia, south of the crest of the Blue Ridge, and west of the Dan 
River." (Discipline, 1948, paragraph 1757.) 

This territory is identical with that of the Western North Carolina Conference 
of the former Methodist Episcopal Church, South. All three branches of Meth- 
odism forming The Methodist Church are included in this new Conference. From 
the Blue Ridge-Atlantic Conference of the former Methodist Episcopal Church 
came thirty-nine ministers and 11,901 church members. The North Carolina 
Conference of the former Methodist Protestant Church contributed seventy-four 
ministers and 22,361 church members. The Western North Carolina Conference 
of the former Methodist Episcopal Church, South, added 377 ministers and 
167,028 church members. This gave the new Conference 490 ministers, with 
twenty-eight others on trial, and 201,290 church members. The Blue Ridge- 
Atlantic Conference had held 62 sessions, the North Carolina Conference of the 
Methodist Protestant Church, 112, and the Western North Carolina, 50. (See 
Journal, 1939, Pages 115, 166).

6. Historical Address 

MULTIPLE METHODISM 
By Harry V. Richardson 

For an organization as large and as cosmopolitan as The Methodist Church, it has 
had in its history surprisingly few disputes or divisions over theology, that is over points 
of doctrine, dogma or belief. This speaks well, I think, for the inclusiveness and flexibility 
of Methodist theology, if any. Some of us complain at times that Methodism does not have 
a theology. This apparently is good, because we cannot fight over what we do not have. 
Also it confirms a conviction, or a prejudice, I have had that the stronger a theology is 
the more divisive it is. 

But if the church has not had its divisions over theology, it has had its full share of 
divisions over other issues, of which the three main ones are ( 1 ) polity, ( 2 ) intensity of 
Christian life, and ( 3 ) social policy and practice centering mainly around race. 

The disputes over polity have arisen on two points: first, on the nature and authority 
of the episcopacy and secondly, on the participation of laymen in the government and 
work of the church. The disputes over intensity of Christian life have centered around 
the importance of and the necessity for holiness and sanctification, and on methods of 
attaining these states. The third great source of division has been the social policies and 
practices of the church, particularly as they relate to the racial problem; that is, as they 
relate to the presence of the Negro in the church and the nature and extent of his partici- 
pation as a member. This has been a crucial issue in the church from earliest times, both 
in the days of slavery, and since the emancipation. It was the most burning issue at the 
General Conference last year in Pittsburgh. 

To the high credit of The Methodist Church, two of its greatest breaks have been 
healed or mended. This occurred when the two large separate groups, the Methodist 
Episcopal Church, South, and the Methodist Protestant Church were reunited with the 
Methodist Episcopal Church in 1939. 

Since those two great units of American Methodism are now non-existent, we will 
say little about them here. Their histories and the story of reunion are too well known 
to need repeating here. 

Besides these two main separations, there have been more than twenty others, twenty- 
two of which are extant, and have not yet returned to the parent body. We are speaking, 
of course, only of those separated bodies that have held to the Methodist tradition. We 
are not mentioning those that have left the Methodist tradition, such as the Salvation 
Army. In general, the separate bodies can be grouped according to the issues that caused 
their withdrawal, namely, polity, Christian living, and social policy or practice. We are 
aware, of course, that more than one issue was often responsible for a group's separation. 
Also, some groups are splits from splits or separations from separations. 

II. Separations Based on Polity. 

The bodies that have separated mainly over polity are: The Methodist Protestant 
Church, organized in 1830; the Congregational Methodist Church, 1852; the Congrega- 



306 Minutes of the 1965 Annual Session 

tional Methodist Church U.S.A., 1852; the New Congregational Methodist Church, 1881; 
the Reformed New Congregational Church, 1926; Wesleyan Methodist Church, 1843- 
the United Wesleyan Methodist Church, 1905. 

Although the Methodist Protestant Church is now again a part of the main body, the 
issue it raised and the cause it championed was taken up by other groups who still hold 
their views and their separate existence as churches. The issue, of course, was the polity 
of the Methodist Episcopal Church, particularly as it related ( 1 ) to the episcopacy and 
(2) to representation of laymen in the legislative bodies of the church. Around 1810 
there was widespread dissent with the power of the bishops. There were also many who 
felt that failure to give laymen representation in the church was unscriptural and un- 
christian. There was strong agitation for reform in the church. Two church papers were 
founded to carry on the discussion. The church refused to concede, and the leaders were 
denounced as disturbers of the chinch. T
